Works
Overview

Joshua Kosker explores time, place, and materiality by working with nontraditional and ephemeral materials. In his Flatland Stack series, he makes his forms by flattening a round object to create a new sphere—the opposite of angle raising, a metalsmithing process that manipulates sheet metal to create volume. Here, he preserves tangelo peels like leather and cuts them into halves, stacking them on top of one another. In his [Re]embody series, Kosker recontextualizes the mundane and highlights the intimate connection between owner and object by setting used bars of soap like gemstones. Over time, these pieces will change as they are worn and are exposed to the elements.
