I work spontaneously. My sculptures are made of found objects; it just so happens that the found objects are ones that I’ve created.

In the late 1950’s I worked for one of the first company’s building mainframe computer, making schematic drawings. It was my summer job in college. Those ink drawings of circuit boards evolved into the work I’m doing today. I make drawings that are converted to vector programs on a computer, then cut out of aluminum and steel with a waterjet machine. The positive cut out forms created are joined by welding  into new configurations and playful combinations. The work talks to me and tells me what I need to do with it to make the forms work as sculptures.
