My work is propelled by the viewer’s interaction. Whether it is watching an ordinary chair turned into an absurd cutting machine, or suggesting viewers sacrifice their own ring fingers to support a botched medical theory, the viewer is participating in more than just the visual experience. The viewer is given the agency to disagree, argue, or imagine other possibilities. I create work that is obviously flawed. It begs a reaction, by allowing and encouraging the viewer to question every aspect of the piece and its function, rather than relying only on the artist’s explanation. My goal is to turn this self-guided critique outside the gallery walls. Recognizing a problem, seeking a solution, and forming a dialog to explain findings and process. I use this formula to revaluate traditions, social conventions, and the dynamic of our surrounding. It is only when fully digested information is challenged that additional possibilities are understood. I assert the task of problem solving as a means to reinstate agency in the viewer.
