I work primarily with paper-maché, the stuff used for grade school art projects and piñatas. It’s cheap, non-toxic, and easy to clean up. It’s also incredibly strong, flexible, durable, and complex.
I’m fascinated with photons, specifically as light amplified by stimulated emission of radiation. I’ve spent decades experimenting with optics and electronics with zero training of any kind. My experiments almost never catch on fire.
Being passionately creative is like having a productive mental disorder -- an irrational determination somehow inspired by failure. It’s a particular kind of obsession, that when I see it in other artists, I am soothed and the world makes sense.
