Statement: With my sculpture I investigate the concept of inventions not designed to solve human problems. I do this by replacing the human with the object itself. The sculptures are invented only to sustain themselves, functioning as self-resolving problems. The result is an object that has been invented only to compensate for the complications created by its own existence. The piece alone represents the need and the resolution. I am very interested in the area where physics and art coincide. It is possible to consider all of my work experiments with tension, friction, and gravity, and the need to find equilibrium.
