Statement
  •  
  • STATEMENT
  •  
  • Christopher Haun's recent investigations addess the cyclical nature of wholistic human existence, and can be considered in terms of opposing forces that are concomitantly working together and against one another: natural and virtual, structured and amorphous, ordered and chaotic, geometric and organic. 
    • "I’m interested in making art installations/images/objects that are equally intuitive and calculated, that are seemingly becoming whole even as they are disintegrating, and that are simultaneously recognizable and unidentifiable. I want to elevate the mundane towards the sublime, to transform ordinary everyday occurrences into extraordinary life-changing events."
  • Haun's calculated and hand-crafted work induces a moment of curious self-awareness that furthers a mental shift toward the devine and the sublime. This perpetual mental shift reduces the constant bombardment of visual noise and cultural commotion down to a meditative contemplative moment to reconnect with ourselves.
