Longing to Travel
I want to travel and I've been thinking about what happens next, especially with the weather. Episodes of crazy weather are all too frequent these days and it’s dampening my adventurous spirit.
I do find solace in cloudy days, though, but it’s only so long until melancholia sets in. Mix that up with a pandemic, and I’ve become uncharacteristically lackluster to venture out. I just want to go places, travel farther, and more often.
I figure I’ll get there any way I can by using one of my weather changing remote controllers. I’ve become obsessed with their making. I want to hold as many as I can in my two hands.
Materials, Places and Empty Spaces
My starting point for each of the aluminum prints on this page is a hand-held 3D sculpture constructed of slip-cast clay, secondhand home goods and hardware parts. Via the process of digital illustration and photography, I redesign, then re-contextualize the one-of-a-kind sculptures into remote controllers able to disrupt cloudy days and windy weather.
Wall or Shelf Display
Each work in the Longing to Travel series is printed on fine grained aluminum. They are lightweight and come with a magnetic device that makes them easy to hang or display on a desk or shelf.
