The need to make something out of materials already present in the world is to an extent a mindful exercise, mitigating the collateral of being a consumer, as well as a producer.
This project is therefore facilitated by the need to reconcile one’s ambivalence towards materiality in an age where waste is a growing predicament. It is shaped by the urgency to think about the surplus of things in a world full of stuff.
These works consist of found mass-produced items, collected over time to bring about a reflection through the disruption of prosaic materials. The proposition of these forms is shaped by the process of accumulation, and speaks to the formation of natural organic structures. Accumulation, in this case, refers not only to a material sensibility but also signifies consumption, labour and time.
