What Matters functions as an enquiry into how we might measure the value of non-physical matter or resources which have intrinsic value, in addition to exploring notions of balance and harmony. The work was inspired after a walk through Dharavi, one of the largest slums in Asia, situated in Mumbai. The scale of deprivation combined with an ability to contain chaos, conjured up ideas of misery, grace, privation, materialism and balance.
