Various works, 2014-2015. Concrete, steel, pvc, foam, found objects, photography.

In the fall of 2014, I began noticing and photographing interesting objects I would see in cities I traveled to. I called them ‘municipal sculptures’, due to their functional and formal qualities. The objects in these photos became the foundation for my BFA thesis project. As I continued my research, I began experimenting with and creating objects using the same industrial materials that the objects I had photographed were made with. Merging my interest in lighting, I started to make lights with these materials, playing with compositions and relationships between different components in each object. The following images show some of these experiments and resulting objects.
