Constructions

(Appropriately, this page is currently under construction)

These constructions are the result of tinkering, which is a creative process that begins with interesting materials and playful exploration. I’m drawn to old electrical bits, interesting fixtures, semi-defunct mechanical parts, salvaged wood and hardware. My goal is to make something new and ideally useful out of things whose original purpose is no longer viable. Another popular terms for this is “up-cycling”, which connotes the making of something better than the sum of its recycled parts.

Here are some of my favorite projects:
