MAKING SPECIAL - curated by Gina Telcocci
November 13 – December 12, 2013
I am fascinated with cellular structures, scientific renderings and physiology. The body is a starting point for examining how I digest different experiences and it functions as an interface between material and concept. I often choose inorganic and mass-produced, utilitarian products that come in close contact with the body. I then recontextualize these materials to create nonfunctioning, organic and corporeal forms, using my own body as a reference to determine the scale of my work.
I am drawn to consumer goods because I am interested in the micro and macro consequences of what we consume, and inversely, what consumes us. All of my work is built cell by cell and my process becomes a physical documentation of time. I use repetitive gestures to amass forms and give physical weight and dimension to different internal states. My work investigates the experience that lies between the visceral and the cerebral.
