Found wooden dining chairs, paper clay, plaster, paint
The Fused Chair is made of parts from five different broken or unwanted chairs. I painted them white, took them apart, chopped them into smaller and smaller fragments, and re-formed them into a smooth seating surface. The chair represents a gradient of processing -- from distinct parts to an unrecognizable matrix to a homogenous soup. My work largely responds to changes in material and form from traditional wooden chairs to modern industrialized molded and amorphous 'blob' chairs.
