The Shift into Digital

Joseph Havel is a contemporary artist who manipulates everyday objects into delicate sculptures. Part of his practice involves exploring the implications of the shifts that occurs during this process of transformation. He casts found objects in bronze such as a soccer or ball or denim. I think that an understanding of the change that occurs by different mediums or designating something as museum or installation worthy is particularly important in an increasingly digital age. As someone who feels more comfortable with art production in the physical world, I recognize that similar shifts will occur in my own work and that a willingness to experiment and play with these shift will be crucial.
