AUSTYN TAYLOR, ceramics
"It is interesting to note that we may be facing one of those limitations of nature, in which highly specialized organs reach a level of declining efficiency, and ultimately lead to the extinction of the species. The human brain may be as far along on its road to this destructive specialization as the great nose horns of the last of the Titanotheres."
– Cybernetics, Norbert Wiener, P.180
Austyn Taylor's panpsychist humorist narrative has led to the creation of a world of repeated characters: bear, bull, horse, deer, lion, duck, predator, prey etc. Each piece is a declaration, a statement; the works exist as an optimistic reframe from the rampant psychological banalities of human narrative.
If people never did silly things nothing intelligent would ever get done.
