Elected 2022

Dabbling with both traditional and digital mediums for approximately 12 years, it was late 2021 when I reintroduced myself to a basic Spirograph set. It dawned on me that drawing with gears married my favourite elements of traditional methods (the tactile process of drawing, composition on paper, making a physical thing) and generative/emergent traits (odd interactions/motion, moirés, surprise). 

Since then I have amassed a formidable agglomeration of gears and have sought to utilise them in unique ways to transform the basic shapes they create into something else altogether.

All drawings featured here have been hand drawn with gears.
