I manipulate found objects, then recombine them with my own system of ball and socket joints. Thus, a paintbrush snaps onto a carved bird attached to a vacuum cleaner stuck to a splintered chair. I invest these materials with a new vitality by building them into massive agglomerations that grow within a given space. As I form the structure, it takes on a life of its own in a constant battle between control and chaos.

Agglomeration, 2004
Found materials, ball and socket joints; 15 x 7 x 6 ft.
