Artists Ackroyd & Harvey discuss the medieval inspirations for their sculptural artwork in Spellbound which evokes the medieval cosmos where humans navigated the competing forces of good and evil spirits. The work draws on medieval ideas about a cosmological crystalline sphere, transformations in demons and the souls of the blessed.
