I collect devalued objects such as packaging, trashcan contents, floor sweepings, and found, discarded objects. Once an object reaches the household curb it loses its original purpose and our capacity to describe lessens. For me, what we discard or sweep up alludes to fundamental limitations of our own human faculties. Most recently my work has shifted to focus on absurdity, humor, and artificiality through the use of redundancy, repetition, awkward pairings, exaggerations, and multiple representations of a single idea. I have been working with used furniture and housewares, sewing, stuffing, wrapping, and painting domestic objects into new mutations of their familiar forms. I often pair my sculptures and installations with video elements of domestic actions or documentation of process to draw connections between intimate, personal activity done in the home and the expansive reach of consumerist goods.
