DIY Political Machines: Circular to Linear Motion
Three kinetic sculptures explore relationships between circularity/co-opting/recycling and linearity/polarization/binary-ness, and how personal agency or positionality intersects with these linked mechanics. (They’re NOT “voting machines;” they reflect the operation of many large systems, frameworks and conversations, e.g., the relationship between the DIY ethos and capitalism, between the political far left and far right, and among nested systems such as science operating within politics (which operates within law).
Vision Test / Viewfinder
This "vision test" or (tourist) "viewfinder" presents alternate interpretations of the same images, via 4 phrases: "WE ARE THE VIRUS," "THEY ARE THE VIRUS," "WE RESIST THE VIRUS," "THEY RESIST THE VIRUS." (An optician asks, “Lens A or B,” to ascertain visual acuity.) COVID-19 exists in a world structured by metaphorical “viruses:” the unhoused, imprisoned, etc. are deemed societal “diseases;” at once, capitalism, pollution & social media are deemed viral. In a given context, who are "we" & "they?" What's a "virus?" As "resist" has political and immunization-related meanings, what does it mean to "resist the virus?"

Suffocation My artworks respond to the psychological impact of action and reaction (Sir Isaac Newton’s third law of motion). I like to think of this law in metaphorical terms beyond the literal mathematical implications. We exist in a constant state of action and reaction – every being is psychologically reacting to every action around that. […]
