Alex Cuffe | Serious Matter, a set on Flickr.
Alex Cuffe is a multi-disciplinary artist who works across sculpture, installation and experimental sound. In their practice Cuffe approaches the materiality of objects in relation to convoluted theories drawn from science, geometry, astrology, kinetics and acoustics. Cuffe’s works utilize the aesthetics of the ‘backyard inventor’ where lo-fi materials and natural matter coalesce, transformed through new media technologies. For the exhibition Serious Matter at Boxcopy, Cuffe’s objects are further informed by ideas of personal narrative, the monument and material residue, operating as a guileless attempt to navigate the complexities of the universe with the material remnants found in childhood.
