Allen Christian

Picture a split-level garage with spinning, glowing and otherwise animated carved bowling balls instead of wheelbarrow and gas grill; with skulls mounted on mechanical torsos instead of broken lawnchairs; replace all of the ordinary things with extraordinary things, then throw in the tools of Allen's trade: welder, grinder, drill press, ventriloquist dummy and boxes of prosthetic eyes, squirrel spines, artwork collected and made over the years and you might have a decent idea of what Allen's world is all about.
