I make bricks. With these, I build structures that are then placed into a kiln and fired to high temperatures. While in this environment, qualities in the bricks emerge and interact with themselves and one another.
My intent is to show that these commercially processed materials are active if they experience enough heat energy. The created objects strengthen, weaken, crack, melt, and blend in accordance to their respective elemental compositions. When cooled, their reactions are captured as a mysterious gesture: a triumph, a collapse, an embrace.
