In Theory, They Work. 2019

The work incorporates and encourages uselessness and the unnecessary and accepts everything others throw out.

The unwanted becomes needed and the broken fixed. A celebration of failure and all things prefixed with a negative connotation; inefficiency uselessness, unproductive, impractical, broken, failed etc.

Humour and absurdity can’t help but be brought into light in this work with its slapdash approach toward assemblage and it’s linear straight faced performative qualities.

In a word or two, the work is desperately incapable.

This piece is entirely interactive and relies on the onlooker to not be afraid of breaking things and to consider other ways in which objects can be fixed and used.
