About MumbleBee Goods

My practice occupies a space of inquiry and production between art and design with an interest in function and the intersection of art-object and objecthood. I draw upon the ideas of design-affordance, adhocism, and the subtle manipulation of how functional objects are perceived. As I approach making, I think about everyday object interactions in my own life: what I take for granted in that interaction, what objects may be invented or reinvented to fulfill a specific need or install a ritual where one was not obviously involved. I want to highlight the presumptions that are afforded to furniture and the allowances given to space and practicality and the social norms of interior design. A sculpture that looks like a chair is an chair but clearly it goes beyond its chairness. It questions the viewer’s experience of a chair, be it delight, surprise, or uncertainty. Or, that sculpture is a chair and you can and should sit on it. My concerns touch on consumerism, imbedded value, and humor in human interaction, highlighting the in-betweenness of art and design.
         How will your contribution help? My focus is to be in the studio. Patreon is a platform for investment, not for finished products, in people and the belief that their ideas are meaningful. An investment in me would mean an investment in my ideas and would help give me more freedom to create without an looming burden of money-anxiety. Material decisions are formal decisions, and unfortunately money plays a role in material acquisition. I have a public page on Instagram that you are welcome to check out. This Patreon page features behind-the-scenes photos of my studio practice that I do not post anywhere else. Regardless of the amount of your contribution, I really appreciate you for your support.

Goals
$2 of $30 per month
$30 per month means drinking the good coffee. I'd probably drink coffee anyway, but this means I'd feel less guilty about it.
