He experiments with 'errors.' Extracting alternative or nonsensical electronic functions from familiar objects as diverse as TVs, radios, cine-projectors, lights, turntables, toys and microchips he creates multi-sensorial sculptures and installations. These objects and systems borrow from, and sometimes fetishize the visual language of both domestic and industrial appliances. Meanwhile awkward, random and repetitive rhythms operate between music and cacophony. Patterns and pulses - digital bits and bytes - all reflect on the internal functioning of the technologies of recent times. These electronic devices are, literally, left to their own devices as self-orchestrating, lobotomised mutants of the Mechanosphere.
