Plastic waste - the remains of consumerist urges - reflects both the world we live in and its influence on us.

In these sculptures I use my own plastic packaging as material. Photographs, particularly advertisements, create desire. Plastic packaging works in a similar way to seduce us. Packaging is like the proof of consumerism, proof that the advertisements were effective. Aware of this similarity between photographs and plastic, and of my competing desires to both consume and protect the planet, I explore the trappings of consumerism through the reflecting pool of plastic waste.
