There are certain strengths that we take for granted in our urban environment and the objects that we surround ourselves with. With time, objects loose their usefulness and can no longer be trusted to hold our weight, light our paths, or stimulate us visually or emotionally. In my work I transform material from the urban environment using simple processes of cutting, bending and stacking. Arranging and reconstructing the portions I search for discernible patterns to create new forms that intercept the preconceived order, inviting a new process of thought or interaction.
