"The work is a result of my formal training as an Industrial Designer at Pratt Institute, obsession with monsters, comic book heroes, and the joy of discovery. I give life to inanimate objects. I talk to them. I am constantly searching for their voice. The sounds that make it alive. With those voices I want to create a world where people can have very human responses that are both personal, universal, and honest. I want people to feel more human. I spend all my time working, drawing, and building...... searching for those small moments when a dream feels it can exist outside of itself. The difficulty is keeping the spirit of the dream alive.... then building and sharing it with others." - Joshua Ben Longo
