Funnel, 2012, steel and tin funnel, dimensions: height 3.5 m x diameter 3.20 m, and glass bottle dimensions: 7cm height

In this installation the artist mutates a household object into enormous proportions, where the shift in scale takes on a psychological charge, and conjures the threat of authoritarian politics. The cold industrial-looking tin of the funnel and the fragility of the glass bottle makes one feel uneasy with their own body, it produces a feeling of the uncanny. The installation acts as an architectural gesture that echoes with the surrounding landscape of the site be it alien or neighboring.
