I am aiming to make ‘future relics’: items that imagine a distant civilisation finding the detritus of our consumer society, combined with remnants of nature, and being intrigued by these symbols of past riches.
My pieces often begin with found objects. In this case, I began with collecting discarded consumer electronics such as TVs and DVDs from street-side rubbish. I then investigated and manipulated their material, using processes such as casting and electroforming.
I’m interested in the passing of time, preservation and destruction, and our fraught human attempts to control or even understand the world we are in.
