I believe "progress" has had a negative effect on the natural world and is driving many animals to extinction. For me the goal is to create awareness of the interaction between human beings and nature by the juxtaposition of my sculptures in the urban environment.


My life size sculptures are made by forging over 1,000 railroad spikes which are slowly welded together from the ground up. In my work the railroad spikes symbolize progress. I used to savage the spikes by walking for miles along the railroad tracks, now I just click a button and buy them on Amazon.
