The makeshift and dexterous improvisation of materials we would not normally associate with art belies this artist’s skill in animating the everyday, to touch our imagination and give pleasure in his tricks for the eye. My Lucky Star is a Rubbish Scorpion 2004, is a mere strip of black plastic which dances randomly in a breeze generated by one fan recycled from a computer hard drive. This animated scrap momentarily poses in the form of said creature about once a minute, causing fascination for viewers of any age and highlights the lyrical possibilities in the most banal circumstances, if we have the wit to spot it.
