Models 2016


This series of models are made from broken electrical equipment that has been taken apart and reconstructed primarily reusing the fixings and holes in the original components. The outcomes have the appearance of pre-computer animation science fiction film models of imagined sentient technologies, evoking at once a nostalgia and a look to the future.

Individually they are playful and occasionally comical, looking like hacked toys or roughly built automatons. Together they form a rag-tag armada of cobbled together robotic soldiers, perhaps of some unnamed underground resistance.

This diversion into sculpture embodies an outsider perhaps amateur approach. Essentially three-dimensional collage or “collage crossed with DIY”; simply things fixed together to make a new thing.
