Artist Statement, 2011

A small group of works that use known objects to test or imagine alternative / new ideas of function. The works playfully undermine or at least unsettle our usual idea of a particular function and by extension the meaning of an ordinary thing, using it to propose, or at least hint at, another functional possibility. The works are most importantly a vehicle to show human desire for and imagining of the improbable or idiosyncratic.  The works are proposals or prototypes for things I would like to see, but somehow they avoid being useful. Another way to see this work is as collisions of two known things but the curious hybrids remain at odds with both; an uncertain object.
