Andrew Friend

My work deals with that which may seem extraordinary, unlikely, desirable, confusing, or uncanny.   I am interested in the fantastic experience, be it the conscious quest to achieve one’s personal fantasy, or the more sub-conscious seeding of a fantastic situation or construct through the actions of others. The fantastic has the power to engage the imagination, initiate dreams and trigger desires, excite, manipulate and confuse.  My work aims to explore how one can, through the production of objects and services located in specific contexts, enable these fantasies.
