Sheep Jet Head is a computer generated map of a passing jet plane flying across a sheep's head and body as it stands in a rural landscape. By capturing invented scenes in a believable but slightly skewed setting, Bunkley illustrates his view of globalised modern life.
Bunkley is Head of Sculpture and a lecturer in digital media at the Quay School of the Arts, UCOL in Wanganui, New Zealand. He began using computers as a design tool for public sculpture in 1992. His work uses various 3D rapid prototype printing technologies, traditional castings and CNC (Computer Numerical Control) milling.
