ARTIST STATEMENT:

I personally collect and tear down each piece of waste in painstaking detail before setting it in epoxy resin inside custom moldings. The result is a suspended kaleidoscope of finely deconstructed trash, spanning everything from e-waste, discarded packaging, to even soiled garbage. In using these discarded artifacts, I invite viewers to reassess both their perceptions about trash and, ultimately, their relationship to it as constituents of the broader social fabric.
