I started this series in 2007 and make new pieces for it every year.
Toys were never innocent playthings for me. They have their own agenda. I’m suspicious of the helpful attitudes of action figures.
Some of the toys and components have been kicking around for 20 years and some are new finds. All the toys and odds and ends have to fend for themselves in these containers grouped by color. Some may not make it.
That’s how it goes in the subversive and Darwinian world of my studio.
I’ve been doing this kind of work since I was 9 years old.
