Mitchell Ferrie’s exhibition ‘Do you see what I see’ is part of an ongoing investigation of works known as the Fractal series. Through the hand of Ferrie, we are left teetering on the edge of what is physically possible with the materiality of the marble. It is a powerful metaphor, a rich dialogue that flows through the exhibition, revealing much about the new world where fault lines exist but cannot be seen.
