These sculptures begin as trash: polystyrene- packing materials recovered from dumpsters or packaging. I meticulously cover the foam in fiberglass and plaster, transforming the material in a way that allows for wider interpretation. Often the sculptures are internally lit with fiber optic lights or covered in silver leaf. The sculptures reference rocket ship control panels, spacecrafts and modernist era sculpture. Their futuristic shapes are produced by the negative space of toasters computers or cameras, though the forms are sometimes deteriorated or broken from time and exposure. These utopian shapes reference a forgotten belief in the future, the ideal and the unattainable.
