dc.description.abstract In my work I seek to cultivate multisensory and participatory spaces that incite a visceral awareness of the exchanges between objects that insist on interaction and their audience. Historically designed and crafted to complement practical gestures, and as unfired objects in their malleable state, clay provokes bodily awareness. The experience of the ceramic machines I craft draw on a tactile sensibility defined by crusty, weathered surfaces, and their noisy function borders on the absurd. Informed by ancient handheld artifacts and monolithic stone monuments as records of mythos and utility, I imbue ceramic forms with my own mythologies, merging familiar functionalities of contemporary life with kinetic objects of dubious futility and provenance. These obscure and interactive objects arouse self-awareness through their animation, connecting lives past and present.
