Sculpture, Found Objects, Altered Ready Mades
Use of everyday objects in my art is my way of connecting with the common things we touch every day and to interpret them in a new light.
Yes, in Climate Changer I am expressing my humorous side. Your first reaction may be to laugh at the idea of the bottles being bent by the force of the breeze from the fan. I hope to evoke a caricature which in this context may seem like an advertising campaign dreamed up by Madison Avenue with a catchy slogan for a soda company. I can also image a fan company named “Climate Changer”.
Yet beneath the humor is a sinister irony. The bottles are almost figurative and bent over as they toil in the heat and perspire in the humid air. The machine represents industrialization and presents a vain attempt at applying a fix to the problems it created. Beneath the humorous visual, a machine blows air across sweating bottles of soda in an absurd and futile attempt to fix the problem that it addresses.
