My work explores traditional or overlooked objects by a process of transforming their surface or structure. Simple objects are of interest as they continue to co-exist, although potentially in a diminished capacity, alongside the world of information technology.
Transformation is achieved through various processes, for example by the juxtaposition of an object with a material, extending into space and by the use of multiples. Increasingly the transformation of objects is achieved by hand made methods. The work is also informed by research into the site in which it is presented.
An interest in humour and the slapstick films of the 20th century are also a concern in the process of making.
