Michael M Simon is an interdisciplinary artist with a Master of Fine Arts from OCAD University and a bachelor of Architecture from Carleton University. Having previously trained as an architect, fabricator, and designer, Simon’s sculpture and installation-based practice combines a conceptual sensibility with elements of fine craft and the industrial trades to offer a recontextualized understanding of common tools, objects, and materials. Investigating our relationship to these ‘things’ with both reverence and humour, Simon’s work proposes an altered understanding of our built environment and our relationship to the objects within it.
