The work in my thesis exhibition acts as an installation of multiple sculptural works that engage each other in conversation through repetition of specific formal and conceptual elements. The concept of repetition is explored through stacking and arrangement to create a provisional and transitory effect in the individual pieces. Material connections also weave throughout the work and attempt to confuse the utility of material- industrial felt is used as a structure and a surface and steel as line, surface and structure. Some works continue the relationship of material and form but to different ends; the soft felt surface is simultaneously fashioned into a ‘ruler’ and used as ‘paper’ for drawing. In other instances this shifting signification is conceptual, for example, the works speak of construction both as structured, closed systems as well as fragmentary states of construction. I am concerned with the translation and transfer of physical artifacts and gestures from mundane spaces of the everyday into a personal, intimate narrative of built space. Bringing exterior public and industrial forms into a dialogue with interior domestic gestures and materials, I deal with notions of labor, repetition, measurements, and an experience of space.
