Through labor, experimentation, and humor, Stephen Neidich uses found industrial materials to explore the modes and emotional outputs of varied stages of stasis and kinesis. Elevating the acrobatics of function and the universal familiarity of everyday objects, Neidich’s practice works to push his pieces to the brink in order to perform the limits of their use and survival.
