Through kinetic sound sculpture and installation I inquire into the organic and lively nature of objects. With an interest in kinetic and sonic rhythms, particularly loop cycles, I explore relationships between individual and grouped components. These include PC fans, electromagnets, motors, and other mechanical and electrical elements in space.
The capacity to do work for people is intrinsic to a ‘machine’. Within my works, I make and repurpose machines with the intention of removing them from such responsibilities, creating pieces in which the machine is doing no work ‘for us’, but is just being a machine, as and for ‘itself’. My works elicit personal responses to mechanical components and energetic operators such as electricity, and through this I hope to inspire reflection upon our relationship with the substances and energies making up our world.
