Artist Statement: Joshua Ware describes his work as biomorphitecture: a neologism naming the confluence of constructivist sculpture and living forms. Biomorphitecture engages architecture and structure through geometric, hard-edge forms. It attends to living forms by focusing on objects of a human scale; relying on handcrafted construction methods that do not engage digital or mass fabrication techniques; and encouraging direct interaction between the object and living organisms. Ware aims to harness the tensions between entities that we often consider contradictory. This piece functions as a usable bench, exploring the relationship between the object and human form.
