ReMaterial is an installation exhibition which transforms and re-imagines the mundane lives of the artifacts amassed and forgotten in the dusty store rooms of those large institutions. Each piece in the exhibit was created by following a single rule. I could use what ever I found, but everything had to be returned in the condition that I found it. Circumventing a predilection toward a more permanent approach to assembling a new piece, i.e. welding, glueing, riveting, or bonding in some form or another, I was forced to discover how these discrete parts could fit together. Each part of the installation grew organically as I discovered new orientations and combinations of objects that, though radically different, some how seemed to fit. The result was a fantastical environment that is sophisticated in its execution while hinting at a more nostalgic and innocent way of making.
