Untitled (glitched objects)
Untitled (glitched objects)

3D printed PLA plastic.

I generated these glitched objects through a botched 3D scanning process of a bathtub’s cast-iron clawfoot, an egg platter, and a corn holder.  Like a panoramic photo, when you 3D scan an object you take many photos that software stitches together to create a three-dimensional object. I incompletely scanned these domestic objects, or scanned them far too many times, and let the software stitch the scans together and “fill the holes” based on surrounding surfaces.  I exported these glitched models and 3D printed them.

Chair sculpture
Chair sculpture

Chipboard and birch veneer.

From the series "Chair Fact".

A chair ceases to be a chair when you can no longer sit on it.

A chair must be fully functional as a chair before it is an art piece, otherwise it should not be a chair. Unless the chair is completely unusable, and therefore a sculpture commenting on a chair.

This chair is positioned upside down, rendering it unusable. I removed the burden of sitting, giving me the freedom to sculpt it anyway I please without affecting its purpose.

User-centered design
User-centered design

Pine and plaster.

From the series "Chair Fact".

Decisions within art or design are made by different parties. In art, they are made by the artist, whereas a designer makes decisions based on the object's future user. I created a chair where its creator was its only future user. The chair's dimensions are relative to my body’s measurements, and my body is imprinted in plaster on the seat.
