Windowsills
Windowsills

Dead flies, singed wood, ceramic bowl, nails ; 2014

A collection and homage of those who died in my proximity during my residency, otherwise swept up and tossed as the dust that lays upon the windowsill. A reminder a mortality and the eternal recurrence of the same.

Charred rocking chair, branches ; 2014

A reflexion on my mother's favourite object and how we long for comfort in the things we don't posses. As age takes it tole and mental illness worsens, I trace the roots of thoughts we share as they isolate us from eachother.

Everything that stands is in a progressive state of decay, everything we lay will fall and wither away.

Assembled hardwood chairs, various singed paints ; 2014

The Hole I Once Called Home

Charred wooden bird house, moth, gold ; 2014

Moths are associated with transformation. In magic, properties of the moth include adaptability, transformation, power and movement. Furthermore, the symbolism of the moth is a reminder to find the light in darkness. Associating it to the bird house and the pieces of gold that rest inside, I reference my journey in finding a new spiritual sanctuary after the loss of my shrine and childhood home to an open pit mining project.

Lamp cages, fur, charred chair fragment, rusty screw ; 2014

A piece made as I remembered trapping wild game as a young man, I reflected on the moral weight of the consumption of other living beings.

Wool, violin, electric motor, horsehair ; 2014

The first manifestation of my modified violin in which the note to be played is dependant on the tension of the string. As the motor spins and hits all four with horse hair, the resulting polyphonic drone progressively evolves as the violin detunes itself.
