  • This project stems from my fascination with those moments in human behavior when intelligence and reason are pushed to the wayside in favour of amusement. To expose these moments I turn intellectual breakthroughs into novelty gadgets or absurd props for comic relief. The forms incorporate serial patterns and the same potential for endless action that you would find in a slapstick movie. They are entire body experiences that can be punched, pushed and grappled with. My intention is to breakdown the hierarchy that exists between physical and mental states by engaging with an object on a tactile level before the censorship of reason kicks in.
