    Packed into a really simple and elegant theme

I enjoy the mental game of taking consumer discards and making the mundane and common into the unique and spectacular. We live in a world in which almost everything is commodified– it is my challenge to repurpose consumer products into the unusual, diabolic, amazing and funny.

Humour has always been a strong element of my writing and publishing, such as my series of Bizarre Patent Calendars. Juxtaposing the right combination of physical elements in an installation to produce a laugh is one of the most fulfilling experiences one can have. Many of my works are fun and interactive resembling oversize children’s toys. I try to help people re-experience their creative group play of childhood.
