Statement: Through scavenging for discarded objects?the handles of hair dryers, plastic toys, frayed wires, rocks and plant parts, empty containers?and rearranging them into new configurations I attempt to re-imbue decommissioned objects with a new sense of function and meaning. I am inspired by new philosophies that seek to deemphasize anthropocentric world views in favorite of a more object-oriented perspective. Motivated by a lifelong interest in collecting thrift-store electronics, I attempt to make visible questions regarding human relationship to technology, science, and the natural world. Through the visual language of the scientific experiment, these images attempt to make electronic materials more corporeal as our devices become more networked, more ubiquitous and thus more invisible in the information age.
