The Pleasure At Being The Cause-Quote By Karl Groos

‍Mikey’s practice attempts to engage with the tension between themes of spirituality, political turmoil, climate change, alienation, nostalgia and play through the process of collecting, curating, arranging, designing and building.

Beginning with a focus on collage his practice has expanded out into a variety of mediums including photography, sculpture, projection, design and digital fabrication. 

His most recent work explores the relationship between the frame and the work, the container and the object, the box and the trinket.

Reflecting on the tradition ofreliquaries in the Catholic tradition, Mikey began exploring digital fabrication as a method o creating elaborate housings for collected objects, collaged images, and disparate materials like mesh cloth and metal grids. 

‍This attention to the frame or container became a practice of its own, allowing Mikey to play with the hierarchy between the two. 

What if the frame came before the artwork? 

‍What if the contained thing was responding to its container?

‍It’s like building a playground and then playing in it.

This interest in play also has a lot to do with labor and fostering a healthy relationship with it. Ina capitalist society, it’s difficult to come upon a relationship with labor that isn’t deeply alienating.

Much of Mikey’s practice revolves around the idea that having a physical, tactile, and immediate relationship with labor and the fruits of it is a rare and special opportunity.

To borrow from German psychologist and theorist of play, Karl Groos, it’s “the pleasure at being the cause” that is the basis of play, the simple, but increasingly rare joy of feeling that your actions are having a measurable impact on the world around you.
