The Machinery of Happiness: Found Object Works, photos

Portland, Oregon

Announcement    NOTE:

If you like what you see here and want to see a complete catalog, including sold and gifted works, be sure to look at my website:
www.themachineryofhappiness.com

I hope you enjoy browsing my found object assemblages. Walking is my favored form of relaxation and exercise and many of my materials were literally found on the street during the course of a walk. Some pieces are simply meditations which allow the objects to speak to each other and resonate (hopefully) with the viewer in an aesthetically pleasing way. Others, such as items from my 'telephone' series are statements about specific emotions surrounding concepts like communication and listening. Don't hesitate to contact me with any questions, requests or suggestions. A more complete look at my work, including sold and gifted items, can be found here: https://www.facebook.com/TheMachineryOfHappiness
Thanks for looking!

I thank you for taking the time to look at my work. While some of these pieces are about a particular emotion or issue, many are simply meditations in space. In all, I try to achieve some kind of visual harmony (which may include tensions!) between the disparate and seemingly random elements. I hope they resonate with some inner, non-verbal part of you, as well.
