The use of the discarded and the found lends itself to a good story.
At first when I considered collaborating with other peoples’ used up and thrown out traces, I was overwhelmed with all the junk, all the stuff discarded. Actually I’m amazed that all of this was coveted, purchased and thrown away. While wandering aimlessly, exploring the edges of the rubbish piles, I came to see the piles as an immense amount of fabulous raw materials for my sculpture.
Who used this stuff? The details of people's lives got dumped. I want to try and give new life to someone's old things, folding them into my ideas of the wild, the open and the uninhabited (the birds).
Throw away. By the way, where is away?
