Chaos Light focuses on a physical interpretation of chaos not a theoretical one. Creating the cheese cloth and plaster lamp shades in a process, repeating the same steps over and over, but getting different results each time; even if only slightlty. The lights are suspended individually or in sets to play upon the differences between each individual shade.

Jubilee Chair is made specifically for the 2nd floor lobby of the Jubilee Auditorium North. The vaulted ceilings allow for the chair to reach its theatrical height and the rawness of the distressed metal adds a new type of mark making influenced by the art work hung throughout the Jubilee. The main goal of this chair is to bring a sense of movement into the space that is more set up as a waiting space for intermission. Using the flowing forms and circular base Jubilee chair brings a feeling of movement from the stage into the lobby. This chair also works well with the existing furniture that is in the space. Jubilee Chair does not compete with this furniture since it laps over into the realm of sculpture almost more than seat.
The metal is formed and bended using a pipe bender and welded in key areas to give support to the round upholstered leather seat. The leather as well as the treated metal lends itself to the existing furniture. Positioned in front of the windows on an evening at the theatre this chair would light up from the existing lighting. Treated as an elegant movement this chair will stand to shine next to the visitors to the Jubilee Auditorium who are dressed up for the occasion.
