Description

Reflecting on my role as a maker and consumer within the Anthropocenic age, Material Witness is a growing body of drawings and sculptures that acknowledges the agency of materials within critical discourse of landscape, network, and OOO theory.

Fascinated by the interconnectivity and therefore the interdependency of global ecological, economic and social networks, my process requires the surveying, collecting, analyzing, and archiving shadows of material goods in search for new potentiality upon their disposal or offering insight into cycles of extraction, production, and distribution.  Working primarily with graphite, charcoal and reclaimed textiles, indexical modes of recording are combined with methods of data visualization to communicate how humans, objects and land are all part of the same material cycle.
