Meticulously constructed from standard corrugated cardboard, these large and small-scale sculptures tread a line between the useful and the useless. Created in response to a rapidly shifting technological landscape, their hybridized forms and poetic names refer to a simpler, more nostalgic relationship with now redundant machines.
Mis en Scene
Assembled from discarded issues of The London Illustrated News 1859, original engravings depicting real events have been carefully dissected and their components re-configured as 3-dimensional landscapes. Each is occupied by a collision of characters, perspectives and visual twists.
From a compulsion to scribble to an automatic drawing. This careless impulse evolved into a hundred precisely assembled works on paper. Each one grapples with the endless potential of the mindless mark.
