my ambition is to build 99 birdhouses, each different, inspired in a roundabout way by raymond queneau's "exercises in style". to date, i've only made a handful; i expect this will take decades.
8-sided tapering shingled form, basically a pinecone. easily the most complicated thing i've ever made out of wood.
wood, plywood, acrylic (2022)
shingled box form - kind of a proof of concept for number 5. installed at the museum of infinite outcomes for avifauna #3 and currently on view there. i saw some straw sticking out of the opening the last time i was there; i think there are birds living in it now.
papier mache, quikcrete, reinforcing wire (2021)
hand-packed concrete around a papier mache form. looking for a place to install it.
stacked poplar discs. installed at the hudgens center for the arts for brickworks gallery's three billion shown and then at the museum of infinite outcomes for avifauna #2. looking for a new place to install it.
plywood, acrylic, hot glue (2018)
dodecahedron thrown together after work one night as a goof and then later installed at the museum of infinite outcomes for the initial avifauna show. it turns out hot glue will slowly melt if left outside all summer - currently needs to be repaired / reassembled.
