War Toys for Boys
production for destruction



'The city is a war machine'
Paul Virilio, Speed and Politics


This project was the creation of a Nomenclature of Military vehicles, Field weapons, Naval Ships and an Armored Train. They formed a large sculptural installation of 58 objects. (November 2014 at the Moores Contemporary Art Gallery, Fremantle) The work is constructed using found wood. Additive Sculpture. My process and method is a very analogue (hand tools only).

Behind the physical work and informing this installation project is research concerning semiotics, the sublime of production, the sublime of logistics and masculinity.
