This document is the continuation of a process of making. It is not a description of that process, but exists actively within it. My current and continuing practice involves an investigation and exploration of multiplicity and iterations of thingamabobs1. This process involves at its core, the intuitive and athletic construction of things from plastic material. Plastic operates both as a material as well as a method in which I make. It is a material whose life span matches its infinite mobility as a raw material. From found plastics, these things are created through a rapid unedited process forming a massive accumulation of colorful wall mounted trophies. Creating humorous idioms and contradictions between materials with varying degrees of cultural context; raw colored plastic is combined with manufactured toys, food storage containers, office supplies and sports memorabilia. Through this collaging of both constructed and found objects, I am able to create a language of visual puns, idioms that do not translate to any language. These things then proceed through a process of continued exaltation and normalization by the creation of multiple iterations of the same things. The things themselves, images, image-objects, catalogues, signed purchase agreements, written documents, and three dimensional scanning become evidence of process.
