About Christopher Platt:
I am a recent graduate of Rochester Institute of Technology’s Industrial Design program and am currently working in Brooklyn at a metals fabrication shop specializing in custom, architectural metalworking.
As an adolescent, I was fortunate enough to have access to my father’s machine shop where I learned welding, machining, and how to use a variety of tools. It is apparent, only in retrospect, that at that time I was developing my own sort of language, my own of sort semantic expression through object making—both in process and product—that is now an integral part of my identity. I, inevitably, continue to develop this vehicle for percepts the same way that anyone continues to develop the vehicle for their discourse with their environment.
Much of my two-dimensional work is an expression of mechanical and kinetic laws, through the setting of initial conditions and transpiration of these configurations. Each piece presents it’s own set of rules, allowing for further manipulation and refinement.
gorgeous chandra making smart things.
love his work
