Controlled Objects: The premise of making is the systematized engagement of a process with a material. These objects work on the premise of control in making. They engage the found with the intended and challenge the premise of error, tolerance and deviation through implementation. The resulting objects are functional adaptations, not quite fully functional products but also not quite fully art objects, they remain in a liminal state of definition. Through their methodological thinking they become manifest. They are justified by the actions that made them. The ensuing perception and interface with the result makes them complete. Like spatial lures they engage pattern, perspective, material, and process to create effect. To make something is to translate the system by which one operates into a resulting object. These objects emerge from this inquiry.
