“I focus on the quiescent potential of materials and environments to be more and different than how they are currently perceived and understood; fulfilling an innate desire to explore, discover, share, and think. Drawing attention to physiological systems of vision, thought, and memory, I am interested in making conspicuous our abbreviated and abstracted understanding of reality, time, and identity. Initially arousing involuntary attention through democratic formal means, the content of my work then enters the cognitive as one actively relates this experience with those already held in the mind as memory. At this juncture of feeling and thought meaning is produced. By delaying this process through reorganizing the fabric of the everyday into the unusual, a heightened sense of the present is felt. Ultimately, one walks away more self aware and delighted in everyday visual ephemera and the experience of being a living breathing being.” – From The Artist’s Statement

The sensorial sculptures of Keith Lemley stem from the grand idea, that an “invisible presence exists in our minds and surrounds all objects, experiences, and memories,” states the Artist’s Statement. Check out how he translates that to art into interior design. It would be cool to put one of the geometric structures in your living room; I could definitely be convinced.
