I am investigating how design can transform raw materials or found objects from the world of the profane into the world of the poetic symbol. The human hand, the shovel and the skyscraper shape our landscape, but they are not alone. The natural world reworks our finest inventions. Bright and shiny becomes dull and rusty; raw becomes new becomes waste becomes ruin becomes art. One of my most abiding interests is in the dialectical relationship between human industriousness and natural resistance.
