The meaning of these works is never predetermined, but emerges during the process of making. This process brings fresh possibilities to bear on ready-made objects that have lost their intended purpose. In forming an integral part of a sculpture, the object acquires new function and meaning. As elements of potential movement, transition, balance, counter-balance, gravity and weightlessness are taken into consideration, a new relationship between objects transpires, and a structural entity is formed. Within these entities, unoccupied space bears as much significance as occupied space. The idea of momentum inherently suggested by a wheel or a foot creates a visual potential of movement and continuity. Thus, a thought, an idea, becomes tangible and available to the viewer for interpretation.
