Halley has developed a distinctive aesthetic language that includes several basic geometric forms. One of these forms is 'prisons', a metaphor for modern isolation.
"I began to think of the prison cell as an analogy for urban life. The story behind my work is that I believe that people have become more and more physically isolated, and more and more dependent on electronic communication to connect."
