My research and artistic production in the field of public sculpture have been influencial in my decision to base my practice upon solution-based tactics. I am invested in the creation of work that interfaces with the public both visually and pragmatically—through my usage of energy producing devices embedded into my work. My ideological basis for creating this type of work is based firstly on an admission that our current way of life is unsustainable, and has left devestating impacts on our environment, culture, and communities. However, rather than attempting to take simply a critical, or scolding stance to achieve awareness or usher change, I have sought through the symbolic and functional nature of solar cells, a type of engagement with the public that depicts, instead, a model for a better future. Solution-based, or solutionist thinking offers a way to combat our cultural ills. Solutionist art acknowledges our problems, yet poses—potentially using interdisciplinary collaborations, forward-thinking, and innovative tactics—a pragmatic, yet positive solution. More specifically, through my practice I aspire to address environmental issues through my work and research, seeking new ways to link public art with clean energy production.
