About

The Tentacles is a journaled exploration of my personal Arts and Projects. My thirst for intellectual provocation and aesthetic satiation is the sole motivation for these obsessive projects.

My most challenging endeavor has been an ongoing affair with studying and breeding Cuttlefish. This has served as a nice bridge between the intellectual and artistic. Intellectually, the challenges involved the system design and developing the entire ecosystem that not only sustain cuttlefish but to allow them to breed. Artistically, I used an excessive amount of Victorian trims and moldings, old rivets and machinery to attempt a theme that blurs the lines between the aesthetics of the old mad scientist, lovecraftian, and ancient maritime machinery. This project resulted with the most equal balance between Form and Function when typically, my art focuses less with the later.

The majority of the other entries on my page are to document my attempt to alter the immediate world around me to function and look the way I feel they should. Much of my art involves taking ordinary objects and hopefully making them non-ordinary. With a similar theme, I enjoy using a combination of wood, metals, found objects, or even remnants of once living creatures to further the illusion that I still live in a world devoid of plastic and efficiency plays a role of lesser importance to design…
