I have been using IKEA products as raw material for several years, and continue to be interested in extracting conceptual value from it. I am currently exploring the relationship between the early 20th century Modern avant-garde and contemporary consumer design culture. For my presentation at SAIC, I will discuss the development of three recent projects, all produced by hacking off-the-shelf IKEA designs. Employing a multimedia approach, I transform these everyday products into sculptural forms layered with historical reference, visual invention, and humorous irony.
