Much of my practice involves making objects through repetitive and labor intensive process applied to ubiquitous materials. This has principally involved using manufactured materials and focuses on the processes of making and unmaking. My work is a kind of investigation into the materials (and the actions linked to them) distilled into something resembling a pastiche of both manufacture and use as well as artistic endeavour and research.
I mainly use manufactured materials that have clear and intended functions and purpose - essentially their existence of manipulation I physically dissect or dismantle both the material and its function. What at first might seem a mis-use ultimately generates its own rationale. The only thing that remains as an archive is a residue of physical labour and the passage of time.
