Brian Zenk collage art statement. 
Symbols, music and motion.
What meaning do they play into our eyes, and what do they mean to each of us ?
I work in paper, freeing images with scissors and assembling them into 3D collages.
These constructions present accidental archetypes.
They're meditative or humorous, busy visual communities, toy box-treasure-chests, closed systems of dream imagery.
In my working life I maintain machinery and machines.
I've learned enough about devices that I'm always curious about their possible fine art uses.
Along with found objects, the controls I've used in industry -- light-, heat- and sound-activated sensors; timers, relays, "smart" devices -- I now build into strangely endearing constructions.
I think of them as motion or light-activated friends.
