For those of you who can recall, I posted this work on this blog on November 7th 2008. In that post, the work was titled Identity as Object an exploration of my identity (see header) as a tangible thing. Between that time and now things have evolved resulting in amazing outcomes some intentional others by intuition.
VERB allows its user to manipulate the form of the object like a set or a prop- to choreograph space.
As the VERB transitions in form it trans-forms in functionality- from stable, balanced objects like a table, a lamp, bench, sculpture, or bookcase, to dynamic locomotive forms that perambulate, rock or spin.
Special thanks to Christopher Cozier, Dave Williams, Damian Libert, Rodell Warner, Terry Smith and David Burke. If it wasn't for you guys non of this would be possible.
