Ishmael Randall Weeks

Ishmael Randall Weeks graduated in 2000 with a BA from Bard College and lives and works in Lima, Peru. He uses discarded materials in his sculptures, including the wood of trees that have been cut down near construction sites, boat parts, inner tubes, and old chairs, to create seemingly functional objects that reflect personal narratives. Nomad (2007) for instance, is a portable shelter made of a recycled tricycle cart, recycled cooking oil cans, a bed, a water tank, and a car battery, among other materials. Hammock (2008) is constructed from recycled tires, ropes, and hooks.
