Ongoing Body of Work 2021-present
How do we measure the seemingly benign decisions of convenience we make daily? Where do last year's trends end up? Who doesn't have a growing pile of tangled cords and connectors from obsolete technology? These are the questions that have been surfacing as I dive deeper into our relationship with plastic and realize it's driven by our relationship to things.
Most of the materials in this series are discarded long before their useful life is over. By turning them into art objects, I restore their place in our daily lives - in fact, putting them on a pedestal as fine art - and ask pointed questions about what moves us forward as a species. Is it convenience, consumption, and the promise of growth or frugality, creativity, and innovation?
