the oneness of a complex or organic whole or of an interconnected series ; a whole or totality as combining all its parts into one.
The sculptures that I create are inspired by the unity I see in the world around me. I am interested in the way seemingly unrelated elements interact and intersect to form harmonic relationships. My sculptures accentuate the connections, visual patterns, and the contradictions that I experience in daily life. I juxtapose the macro and the micro to highlight visual parallels and to remind us that we are structurally connate with the world around us. I use abstractions of forms that are found in the many layers of our lives, be it industrial cogs or the shape of red blood cells flowing in our veins.
Constructed Cartogram Series Statement
My goal is to help you experience nationalism from a different perspective. I am inspired by Benjamin D. Hennig’s PhD research. Henning created two-dimensional cartogram drawings of which were altered and distorted, correlating with human population data. For the past three years I have transformed these maps through research and my creative process, into three-dimensional sculptures.
