Some materials possess an intrinsic ability to either conduct or insulate energy.
Some enable movement, others inhibit movement.
Movement touching non-movement creates friction.
Of turning and syncing is a solo exhibition investigating the activation that can occur at the point-of-contact between two surfaces. Using ceramic, aluminum, copper, paper and plastic intersections between materials are created as they rest upon, brush past, hook around and lift up. The work examines: How sensitive is one surface to the touch of another? What is drawing a charge? And what is being drawn from?
I like to understand how materials work; what is at work in a material.
There is a sensuality to mechanical forms and materials that I attempt to elaborate in my practice. Using sculpture and installation, I initiate points-of-contact between surfaces, hoping to cause a spark or a sigh.
