Assorted hand-cut, recycled, Styrofoam clamshell containers and cups, 2011

 

I want to publicly share my neo-romantic sense of wonder in the beauty of patterns found in nature. My interest in the sciences of natural history, biology and complexity theory is expressed through sculptural installations made from found synthetic materials. By constructing organisms from plastic and Styrofoam, which share the same source as petroleum, I connect consequences of consumption of fossil fuels in our society with the beauty and fragility of the natural world.
