In this series of sculptures I'm working with the idea that everything is a machine, and that there are two main types, human-made and nature-made machines. Each piece combines natural elements, (rock-feather-plant-etc.) with human-made elements (rusty farm machinery-motors-etc.) to create the machine-nature interface. All mechanisms are exposed and understandable. In this way I hope to show that as human technology advances the difference between natural and human-made machines will decrease until they eventually blend together, and that the merging of the two is a good thing not to be feared.
