The starting point of this project is my interest in the body as concept, as object, and as process. The purpose is to create body-centered objects that speak for themselves without requiring significant amounts of explaining and reasoning. An underlying motivation is to remember the body in a modern time of reason and technology. The project explores two questions:
1) How can I find the balance between the overly representational and the overly abstracted figure?
2) How I can minimize the energy expenditure involved in making, while not compromising my commitment to the handcrafted?
