Through the creation of desirable distractions in a society that is heavily rooted in consumer culture, objects of desire and products of pleasure shock the viewer into submission. Referring to the public’s obsession and insatiable lust for ‘more’, the difference between excess and necessity drives the work by reflecting on existing in a society laden with excessive consumption and mass production. With an attraction to the idea of pleasure and tactility, I make work that tackles the anticipation of experiencing a forms physicality by interrupting an objects satisfaction through altering the materiality or means of display.
