One day a large sheet of white plastic turned up in my garage. We took it out, started skateboarding on it, throwing down some heavy powerslides. Then we decided to break out the paints, we slid and skid through the pigment and spread crazy speed lines all over the plastic. Then the rain came and spread it out even more, creating a chaotic effect on top of the fast moving streaks. Over time the sheet got cracked and broken so I turned some of the fragments into this series of lamps. We're still cleaning the paint out of our wheels.
Collision is a inescapable fact of city life, it's impossible to have so many people running around without them bumping into each other every once in a while. This lamp was created using fragments of a headlight that was smashed on Queen street west. The structure of the headlight provides excellent augmentation of the light while the jagged edges capture the violence of the moment.
This lamp was created from dead leaves in a broken glass jar. The greenery catches the light and seems to be exploding out from its vessel.
