Shadows Upon Me
Working with pre used plastics as a metaphor for what we throwaway. I used everyday objects to see how light interacts with them, highlighting affects our wasteful culture might bring in the future, be it beauty or destruction.
Working off the human instinct “if I cannot see it, it's not there”. I sought to question what would happen if we could see the effects in the future atmosphere and expose what is happening?
The work is placed into a darkened environment and a light source is positioned in the room to project the content, which needs to be inspected further to find its source and substance. I identify my work as transparent, showing the mechanics of its making.
