— Reset, c. 2017

This work explores the principle of rejecting events and notions of the external world (events desired to be controlled) and reverting to a pre-adolescent state of oppositional defiance. This has been communicated through the use of an artifact from childhood and elevated in status by using the medium of silver as if to ask the question is this an acceptable response to events, or simply an immature response? Is this notion simply wiping the slate clean or is this disfunction? As a second meaning, the artifact itself has taken on the meaning of rebirth and rejuvenation in the last two years of life, further exploring the relationship between intent and destination in the minds of the consumer. Much like music becomes personal to the listener, so too are objects susceptible in personal reinterpretation.
