Game Pieces - Glass and Ink Jet Prints of 3D Touch Consoles
Digital Media Prints made on 3/8" glass. Game pieces are touch consoles, illusions to help escape the reality of climate change. Print sizes can vary to your specifications. With a touch console, I can travel anywhere I want to go. The prints result from 3D objects I make with found and secondhand materials and clay parts I cast from slip. There will be a change in the weather, there always is.
How and Why
I enjoy the action of reproducing objects that are related in function and meaning but not identical in form. This is because of my early training as a production potter, which I practiced for thirteen years.
It was while reading Walter Benjamin's "The Work of Art in the Age of Mechanical Reproduction" in graduate school that I began to consider the handmade objects I make as a natural result of the interdependence between industry, art, and technology inventions.
I use plaster molds to shape my forms. Their reproduction qualities, such as the mold lines that I leave visible, are left as subtle reminders of their manufacturing qualities. Molds were invented to make that possible. I enjoy the process of altering each form to make it original.
I believe, because of our inventive minds and the tools we have available that humans are responsible for what comes next in this world. And that brings me to the weather and the beauty of the natural world that I love and feel I am losing some of. I have lived long enough to see the degree of control we have obtained over nature and I am concerned. My handheld, handmade Game Consoles help me imagine escaping this world of crazy weather and changing it, too. They are my tools for scaling the universe in my mind. With them I can traverse distances unimaginable.
