cardboard soundproofing material, electrical wire, cable ties, wood, gaffer tape, aluminium baking foil
'All Nite Diner' exhibited at THE DEBUT SERIES, University of Leeds, 2011
The ongoing reflector series seeks to play with the physical constraints of object-making. The bright lights and highly reflective foil form an imbalanced synthesis with the uneasy tower of cardboard soundproofing, almost as if the viewer has walked in on this shoddy homemade object making some kind of cheap Faustian pact with the foil's vulgar tackiness in order to improve (or obscure) itself. The foil quite literally rebuffs any advances made with the viewer's eyes, shining unforgiving bright light in every direction.
