The way we relate and recognize spaces and places as belonging/not belonging/alien/familiar is the foundation of my method of creating 3-dimensional objects.
Having opportunities to tour factories abroad ignited an interest in manufacturing, both professionally in product development and conceptually. Manufacturing is a brutal machine, but is also a sort of alchemy.
I grew up playing in haunted barns, rural junkyards, and the forgotten green spaces between housing developments – the cast-aside pieces of the manufacturing machine. The parts forgotten or deemed useless can be given new life with vastly different context. We can create new worlds out of the old one.
Here is a broad sampling of my physical work: art direction for film and stage, lasercut creations, metalworking pieces, and mechanical contraptions. I seek in all things to create a sense of wonder.
