Humans build systems. The world is full of them, operating around us all the time, but we’re so saturated in them we often don’t recognize them. Bruno Latour describes this phenomena as ‘blackboxing’, the way that ‘scientific and technical work is made invisible by its own success'. Only when a system falters does it force its way to the surface of our attention. My works are embedded into these systems as anomalies, moments of the unanticipated. These encounters elicit a double-take, where the work punctures our expected reality. It can be likened to tripping over a tiny rise in the pavement - in that moment, the world fades out to be replaced by the fixation on something slightly out of place.
