Recently, I was contacted by a student from Mimar Sinan Fine Art University in Istanbul asking whether I had a video about my working process. I don't. So I made a little quick one. Check it out here if you like.
I am making some new work relating to the cold culling of our belongings in the States, to the delicate deliberation of what to ship south, to the current considerations of what further items truly need to be built, bought or borrowed to make this life better.
I am focusing on crates, pallets, boxes, containers, barges, and rail cars. I am trying to build pieces that identify:
-the production of a purchased item as the product of someone's day (glass containers on metal rail cars)
-the desire to receive items that are neither purchasable nor shippable (constructed glass crates)
-the wide and complex collection of common components needed to supply a "normal" life (glass forms on metal pallets)
With all of this said, all of these bits are just beginning to coalesce into actual constructions.
Attached are few rough studio shots.
