My work became significantly object focused in research of soniferous and reverberant materials. Thereafter I started using materials to proliferate agendas between industrial and individual frameworks of practice. At intersections between these two polarities, articles are used as a means to ascertain affairs they themselves generate. To survey the offhand manner of objects, repeated use of industrially fashioned articles and processes allow for their deceleration. Through this transpires their complex existence and participation. Therein lies the potential for examining how the industrial – production; mechanization; automation – reproaches or fortifies individualism, and whether one is a more esoteric or independent than the other.
