Hofer’s combination of mass-produced pop cultural images and make shift architecture of tools and cheap materials is a dystopian vision grounded in realities of contemporary urban existence.  Sculpturally it is beautiful, and the tension he creates is compelling.  With his warped sense of proportion and construction Hofer has intentional destabilized his forms and their relations to each other, creating incongruities that confound ones sense of reason.
