Work Overview

Recollections of industry, fabrication and the mechanical arts provided the foundation for jeu fabriqué

As a child, the seemingly endless mechanised space of my father's workshop, and all the sonic and visual activity contained within, became augmented through my imagination.

Each time I would visit the workshop, an expansive spectral palate seemed to unfold, where work tools, the shapes and sounds of these tools and the spaces surrounding them provided vehicles of discovery… Tools became toys, articulating the imagined. The workshop was a place of motion, industry and invention. Throughout the work, intersecting patterns, gestures and spaces are presented to the viewer, modulating between the abstract and the concrete. Images are plotted, and sights and sounds unravel as recollection and chimera become fused. The material heard and images seen throughout the piece has been generated from recordings and footage of toy tools, real tools, imagined spaces and real spaces, all of which attempt to typify some of the sonorities and images found within an environment of fabrication, invention and imagination.
