Process

House is a self-portrait using 5’9” steel pencil road. The aim was to build a house and see how to explode it. I welded a simple house structure, cut pieces of pencil rod to my height, thread a tripod through the house and welded them together. Once the sculpture stood, I cut me-sized rods and welded them to the tripod. This method has no end and leads to endless growth.
