FOUND PLASTIC FROM UNITY ISLAND IN BUFFALO NY,
RECLAIMED SHOWER CURTAIN, THREAD
LISTEN TO WHAT I’M TELLING YOU
TYPEWRITER, PAPER, SURFACE TRANSDUCER, MICCA PLAYER, AMP
The typewriter was used to channel intimate self-reflections. The act of typing was recorded and plays back through the body of the machine using a surface transducer, amp, and micca player. The typewriter echoes the memory through vibrations. You're left with the sound in place of the written word.
CORRESPONDENCE WITH DETRITUS
MESOPLASTICS & MICROPLASTICS, INSECT DISPLAY PINS, DISPLAY CASE
As a dyslexic the alphabet resembles shapes that can feel foreign at times. By replacing text with abstract plastic debris, I maintain the format of a written letter while distorting our ability to read it. The plastics are found and removed from the environment, unaltered, tagged with its geographic location to maintain the object’s integrity and understand its lasting impact.
THE NEW SPECIES
MICROPLASTICS, INSECT DISPLAY PINS, DISPLAY CASE
THE NEW SPECIES is a series of microplastic display cases that explore plastic as an entegral part of our ecosystem. It catagorizes and organizes plastic in relation to it’s shape and size. A similar technique scientiest use to study and understand key rolls species play. Although this often looks at living organisms, it is undeniable plastic has infultrated every environment on the globe.
This case was made with microplastics found on Matosinhos Beach in Porto, Portugal.
CROP: A SIMULATED DYSLEXIC
This text-based sculpture uses a simulated dyslexic font created by Daniel Britton to spell out the word 'CROP'. The word is spelled backwards and is made to cast shadows to further disorient the reader. This sculpture represents some of the difficulties dyslexics experience while reading.
