ABOUT

Building a machine, without factory assistance or expertise, is a powerful act: particularly within late-stage capitalism, it is an assertation of autonomy. The mechanisms I create are expressions of mechanical interest, without permission or expectation of utility. They are revolutionary because I am learning and creating without agenda, which is what humans are built to do. Because of the society we have built, we have strayed from our natural curiosity and wonder. I seek to reignite the idea that learning and exploring is a unique and divine part of the human experience.
