"By utilizing subtle humor and perceptual disorientation, my practice attempts to playfully challenge the viewer's notion of normal; to unravel common societal practices and reveal their dysfunctional systems of power that are frequently ignored. I am drawn to architecture and consumer objects because their intrinsic design and function conveys a capitalist identity containing an inherent yet sometimes fallible logic. Natural materials play a key role in my artwork as well, for economically powerful infrastructures cannot proliferate without a persistent network of contributing resources." - Elisabeth Kohnke
