Continuouslessness, 2011 – ongoing

The word exists as a messy double negative resulting in negative concord. Its structure is visually awkward, a linguistically clumsy collection of letters, and the sculpture reflects its title’s literal coalition of chaos.

It’s a physical translation for an awkward yet functioning union of differing parts. No one panel can stand alone, but must rely on its neighbour for structural support.

This neither guarantees harmony nor precludes individuality as each panel may demonstrate a different idea, material or character as long as it’s able to connect to the previous panel, be that an awkward joining of hands.

The work remains unfinished.
