Father and Son
This body of work looks at the father and son relationship through the exploration of my father’s working life as a welder and engineer, as he nears retirement. Basing this enquiry on the scientific principle of covalent bonds primarily used to join metal structures in welding. Underpinned by the theories of Franz Kafka expressed in his novel Letter to My Father the work looks at the strained relations between father and son. This work aims to compare and contrast the causes and effects of the father, son relationship, as well as the analysing the small fragments of shared interest and likeness which culminate to form a relationship of this kind.
