Biography and art, auction, artworks, interview, statement, website:
I see my process as 'un-digitising'. I take images and information that I find on the internet and then use this to create full size 're-enactments' of the object. My materials are simple and ordinary, primarily plywood, and in the case of the Kandada project, discarded paper from the printers nearby. While my sculptures are the same size and shape as the real objects, they are not exact reproductions. They are filtered through my process and constructed from everyday materials. As such they take on aspects of their new context. NSAT-110 becomes "My NSAT-110"…
