Artist’s Statement
My work analyzes subconscious human behaviors and their spatial impact. By documenting transient moments of repetitive toxicity in urban landscapes such as fleeting posters, cans, and plastic bags, I highlight the indulgent and wasteful aspects of our lives we fail to observe. From physically enlarged photo realistic litter to constructing interactive installations, I am able to address quiet uncharted moments always around us. My desire for material sustainability is strongly influenced by making recycled handmade paper derived from studio waste scraps. Through sardonic representations of consumerism, my prints and installations capture the recurrent debris we leave and instantaneously disregard.
