“Be the change you wish to see in the world. Nothing is more essential for the twenty-first century and beyond than personal transformation. It’s our only hope. Transforming ourselves is transforming the world”

In Love with the World: A Monk's Journey Through the Bardos of Living and Dying by Yongey Mingyur Rinpoche, Helen Tworkov

                                      Helen Eberhardie Dunn
MFA Royal College of Art, Associate Royal Society of Sculptors

Interacting with the elements: water, earth, light, breath, sound and space, I share my love and concern for our environment. Objects, installations and performances are all expressions of connectedness. Community and collaboration are at the core of the practice, offering everything for the benefit of all beings.

Digital media in combination with sound, performance, object making, photography and drawing are used to identify threads of exploration. Immersive installations include, ‘Bone Chimes/Body Fragments’ involving sound flows, vitrified porcelain, animal hair, silk, and film projection as a moving light source, ‘Interruptions, and Interventionist Landscape’, and ‘Slow Videos’ which are made with the intent to detach expectations. Recent time based installation; 'Cracked Earth - Rising Blue' and ritual performance 'FlowRate' are part of ongoing environmental project, 'The Dry, silent earth, homage to solastalgia' an interactive, community involved, public work exploring geological and biological processes and human emotions in relation to climate change.


Helen is an accomplished classical sculptor. A student of Helen Chadwick at the Royal College of Art, London, she explored integrating carefully crafted objects within an installation and performative context. Her master's degree culminated in a series of ritual performances ‘Sound Mandala’ which took place in  Kyoto, Japan, and various locations in the UK.
