Artist Statement:

For me, found objects contain latent potential to transform from trash into sublime things. The act of assembling these pieces is similar to writing poetry: the end result exists in a liminal zone of the delicate, unexpected and playful. I am excited by the process of narrowing down the infinite permutations of these objects to a new arrangement that's as surprising to me as it is to the viewer.
