In my work I aim to create a
visual link between the materials we use daily, their origin in the resource
management industry, the labor required to gather them and the landscapes from which they are harvested. The
concept that we live in a “post-scarcity economy” is paradoxical when
considering that the amount of accessible matter on earth is always
finite. Materials are permanent, it can
be difficult to remember this since we often experience them in temporary
objects, but when a bottle falls off the shelf and crashes on the floor, we
remember we are picking up pieces of glass.
