Various objects and scenarios trigger unique associations in individuals. These associations develop from the individual's past and dictate their personality. A person's history prescribes how they react, relate, and empathize with objects around them. These evoked emotions and memories intrigue me and compel me towards further consideration

I draw upon similarities between mechanical processes and human emotion. The monotony, persistence, and self-wear evident in working mechanics strongly represents human traits that allow me to relate and reinterpret.

By closely examining these movements and interactions of mechanics, I intend to create works of curiosity that invite the viewer to explore their associations with each object.
