I am interested in the untold stories of everyday objects that exist on the periphery of our lives. The complex interweaving of natural and man-made structures is easily overlooked, yet it serves as a powerful metaphor for the cycle of life. The struggle for succession of plant over shard produces striking visual contradictions that serve as a complex metaphor for human encroachment on the environment. This is a world in conflict where the fragile and the tenacious at once embrace and co-exist.
