The sculptures allude to the internal workings of the human body. In nature, biological cells multiply and conglomerate en masse. Here, copper, steel and PVC elbows are arranged into tight modular
agglomerations of bends that reference molecular configurations. The titles refer to chemical properties and serial classifications of their base materials which, in turn, provide a direct link to biomechanics. The industrial-ness inherent in the utilitarian pipes interrelate with the framework and the exaggerated synthetic designs and systematic motifs of Schema, which are created by using a tessellated, random pattern-generation technique. Their enlarged pixelations distort form perception and challenge notions of image representation.
