Artist Statement:

The built environment, its negotiation of space, utility, structure, nature and competing individual interests are the catalysts for my practice; in a word, architecture. These elements become amplified as population centres develop and expand. As Hundreds, thousands, millions inhabit, mass or swarm a space, humanity manifests as a new macrocosm: far more alike to circuit boards, hives, or bacteria on agar. To take in humanity at this scale is an intense and satisfying experience, as politics, monuments, industry, residential, waste and function fade to a resonate whole. The same language and materials of architecture are used within the works: Radiata pine frame; balsa scaled models; bright acrylic paintings evoking vectors and design software.
The hope is that this play cultivates a sense of our own human habitat the individual may not usually get; the chaos of conception, design, technology,
compromise, construction, growth, recession, demolition and abandonment
encapsulated in a single moment.
