ARTIST'S STATEMENT.

 

I am a small time operator. I find meaning in the contrast between opposites. My work is an effort to balance mind and body. I use technology against itself.I bring into question modern technology, as a point of reference. I bring antiquated technology, telephone parts, stereoscope viewers, antique drills, violins, piano parts, and animal bones, ad infinitum into a flux where the humor of the combination of materials begins to create, ex machina, meaning in and of itself. My name is David Isakson. I weld and join materials to make humorous deconstructions out of everyday objects. My art is an outsider deconstruction that blurs the distinction between the inside and outside world, thought and feeling.
