My practice aims to transform spaces by creating sculptural forms which mimic other objects and features of the room. The works make use of basic forms and stark industrial materials that reflects the minimalist scene of the 1960s and early ’70s. The simple nature of each sculptures elicits a self-assigned meaning from the viewer, but also invites them to adopt a certain viewpoint due to their size, shape and weight. The concept of situating the viewer into a certain positioning comes from an interest in how space is mapped out, and this leads my sculptures to comment on the way our daily lives are changed and pre-determined by the layout of streets, walkways, roads and corridors.
