JOSH GARBER: Amorous Terrain explores seductive nature of haptic surfaces. He transforms inert industrial elements into a sensual energy. Intricate self-organizational patterns blend cutaneous skin-like structures into natural landscapes. Industrial materials transfigure into a whimsical framework that reshapes our fundamentally utilitarian view of industry into a more playful meditation. Hardware such as nuts, bolts, screws, and steel bar blossom into a larger realm of fantastic terrains that become more intimate extensions of ourselves.
