The Combine Project- 2009

This body of work is based on an obsolete combine harvester that was left on my property in Walter’s Falls, Canada.  I tore the combine apart and used the various moving parts to make large kinetic sound sculptures that involve viewer participation.  The Combine Project has been exhibited at the Tom Thomson Art Gallery in Owen Sound ON, Laurier University, Waterloo ON, Grimsby Public Art Gallery and the Hamilton Museum Of Steam And Technology.
