My work is an investigation of various apparatus of labor, class and socio-economic constructs using sculpture, sound and repurposed objects as its discourse. These elements are often combined to create site and culturally specific installations and reflect on notions of the machine, not as a technical device and apparatus, but as a social composition and concatenation, and reflection of our contemporary situation. My research and projects are sourced from urban places, and the materials that are considered the detritus of these locales, and then re-realized into playful objects to allow entry into a larger dialogue about hierarchies and systems of power.
