Major project:



  • I make mechanical art and my practice is questioning how semiotics of humour could be re-interpreted and sculptured by the crank-rocker mechanism. The movements that I design in projects come from my thoughts of daily experience and attention to the natural phenomena. I aim to achieve and continue to explore a sense of motion,  making objects that talk by themselves through the concepts of inevitability and contingency.
