The following is part of the response to the You can do it with plastics request by AUB staff and students.

Art is the demonstration that the ordinary is extraordinary, Amedee Ozenfant

My inspiration: everyday life.  My passion: art.

I question the traditional distinction between the realms of art and everyday life by blurring the boundary between these realms through the re-presentation of readymades, assisted readymades and everyday, commonplace experiences. 

I transform everyday objects by applying simple interventions in form and/or presentation, changing their status from commonplace objects to art objects.  By shifting the context in which the viewer encounters these objects, I aim to turn the previously banal into the exceptional and unexpected.
