In the midst of a temporal ambiguity and enigmatic utility, there exists an anomalous zone, a contextual space, in which form contradicts function, and necessity is not necessarily an essential component of invention. This is the space that intrigues me -- where machines are no longer derivative to their function, and tools assume a life of their own. The means to articulation and purpose are no longer subservient to an identifiable end. The context of this zone is both machine and man-made, yet without the essential quality of utility usually associated with this class of object. However, the potential, and possibly, even desires of the objects to come to life and exist as articulating machines is anticipated and contemplated.
