Artist StatementMy work is a physical process of searching in which I investigate my existence in the context of contemporary life. I collect discarded human-made objects before they are swallowed back into the earth. I gather waste material from industrial production and daily consumption. I understand these materials as part of a globally interconnected ecological system in which we are all participants. My aim is to provide a sensual experience, removed from the boundaries of language, which encourages the viewer to question their paradigms.
