Studio - Work in Progress.

2015-16.

Current Research

focusing on a negotiation with the world of STUFF, ie: interactions with materials and objects, exploring ideas of value, profile, association, meaning and behaviour of materials, individual and collections of objects. Things are explored both as material stuff and anthropological signifiers, that are capable of revealing the human condition - vulnerabilities and capabilities, value systems affected by consumerism and material status, and objects/human dependencies. It is important for me to explore as the maker, and communicate to the viewer a material engagement, where the works suggest a human physical interaction, such as an object that can be used, yet is unfamiliar or un-recognisable. For example, works manifesting as objects with handles/protrusions inviting human interaction, while undermining the action - what it will do and to what end.
