Fidget is the project I have been dedicating most of my spare time to for the past month. The installation will eventually be comprised of several strands of handmade worry beads (komboloi), modelled after the traditional ones known and used in Greece as a tool for relaxation and meditation.

My intention with Fidget is, as with other works of mine, to address the ways in which we use repetition and repetative acts to desensitize ourselves, and to allude to the constructive and destructive implications of this instinct.

I'll be submiting this piece to a show called Insomnia, which will take place at Red Head Gallery during Toronto's Nuit Blanche festivities. (Saturday, September 30th, sunset to sunrise)

More pictures, and possibly as short statement to come soon...
