Currently I use both paper and metal for their ability to record the intricate effects of wear and tear on the cultural and natural fabric of our contemporary world. My sculptural forms reveal a world in which climate change is assaulting natural and cultural boundaries. Things are seriously out of place. Objects, as well as life forms and processes, are left suspended in locations/situations where they are unable to perform their usual functions. Discovering and inventing a new purpose for things has become a crucial task at every scale.
