IIIF Manifest:

"The vibrant paper collages are grounded in meticulous attention to detail, their intricate geometric scaffolding recalling the Vorticist abstraction of one of Bowie's favourite artists, David Bomberg, whose stated aim was to find the 'spirit in the mass'. But Diamond Dolls is also a performance piece, designed to open out into a stage-like set; structured like a play as a series of acts; and reliant on the input and response of the audience if the dolls are to come fully to life."--introduction text.
