I see my project as an attempt to make artwork that reflects how the modern, shape-shifting Global economy is changing the way we think about the things we own, trash, grow, hold, or touch. I want to capture the life cycles of everyday objects, how things become valuable and intimate or expendable and unwanted. Specifically, I’m curious about this moment of transition we find ourselves in, as technology quickly renders certain objects—books, photographs—precious, while mass production renders other things—beds, armchairs—disposable. I approach this theme through the lens of my own relationship to the everyday landscape of New York.
