I am honoured to announce that I have received the Cox and Palmer Pivotal Point Grant. This means a great deal to me and I’m both invigorated by and appreciative of having people support me in creating an exciting new body of work called Object Says No.
I have many sketches and photos to share of the work that I will share shortly. I will continue to update my blog with new forms of exploration that the work finds itself taking. Here’s a little blurb on the project if you’re interested.
Object Says No is a series of interactive electronic sculptures based on household mechanisms. The often-unnoticed light switches, smoke detectors, faucets, thermostats, doorknobs, all play an under appreciated roll in our daily lives. We touch them and we expect only the expected from them. This work is about subverting what we know, crushing expectations and creating a playful and imaginative environment for people to explore.
I am very grateful to the countless number of people who have helped me.
Thanks for reading.
