Everything and Nothing Changes
This report is the creative thesis of my sculptural works completed at East Carolina University. Signage, sculpture and antique transportation technology influence the technical processes and geometric forms which support a surface inspired by my exploration in the history of automotive painting techniques. Despite the specificity of my influences, a universal visual language of patterning and shapes emerges within the work. This recognizable language forces people to associate meaning with the objects, whether they want to or not. With this tactic, I wish to slow the speed of modern life and (re)explore our connection to the past. Creating works that are public interventions led to the discovery, usage and testing of Orgonite in sculpture, which has become a large part of my creative practice.
