I rescue discarded things—ranging from bottle tops to store window mannequins to old scrap metal—and assemble these objects to create sculptural installations.  I capture both the process and product using high-resolution digital photography and then add a layer of digital manipulation to further remove the objects from their original contexts.  The resulting prints capture one instant of the inherently transitional nature of these found items. Drawing from my experience in the corporate design world, I explore the relationship between commercial images and more traditional fine art while posing serious questions about the ephemeral nature of our culture.

It is my hope that by creating and documenting an aesthetic arrangement of our society’s refuse I will call attention to the possibility for beauty in even the most mundane sources.
