I expose the viewer to look at life in the twenty first century intimately
and to acknowledge human existence . I make art that involves or relates
to electronic equipment, engines, organs, chance, light, sound, gravity,
time, motion, interaction and reaction.
With a juxtaposition of science, technology and art I create pieces that
involve interaction on different levels. You can talk to a sculpture then
be herd by other viewers or listen to a painting that translates its shapes
into sounds or watch a piece of arts one minute history as it was being
created. This gives the viewer a physical and mental connection and with
the use of interaction within a gallery helps to provide the completion
for my art.
I like to experiment with concepts and materials that are alien to art
to embrace the innovative. I feel it is very important to move forward
to ultimately pioneer in your field of art. To sustain the potency in
my concepts I keep them as simple as possible and my creative process
is forever fluid. The quest for knowledge and the development of experimental
and traditional skills is a key part of the process. However experimental
projects are problematic, but this is beneficial as I have created techniques
accidentally through solving problems and used them for future projects.
I feel this is when art gets interesting, when ideas fall into your lap
This is one of the reasons I like to work with chance, it gives me freedom
when working potentially on a infinite scale of chance to addictively
further conclude. But fundamentally I feel it is important not to be restricted
and be able to branch out or focus in conceptually and aesthetically.

Concept: The ear is designed to induce the viewer to interact and create
random sound events in an exhibition environment. A minidisc is recording,
so in turn will be played back the following day through a speaker in
the gallery while people are again interacting with the Ear thus creating
an overlapping loop. I see this as an opportunity for the viewers to express
their selves creatively with no boundaries. Therefore, the ear is a tool
to inspire the public to create a piece of sound art that will reflect
conflicting views and cultures in a true light. There will be no need
for me to engage in editing, as when the lights and the green beam of
the oscilloscope are triggered, the recording will automatically commence.
I am interested in the mundane view through to views that can smash political
correctness, but as a chaotic piece of art, nobody can speculate the out
come of which I feel is truly exciting.
Made from acrylic, petg, hard wood, stainless steel, oscilloscope, sound
to light kit, microphones, minidisc, leather and light diffuser.
