I use discarded and recycled plastics as molds to create multiple casts. The resulting casts reveal the minimal industrial markings of the containers they come from but also evoke imagery of erosion and fossilization due to the organic casting method and materials. The casts which I approach as reliefs/paintings are made from powder pigment, pulverized marble and binder. The palette is generally suggestive of geologic materials.

This work imagines a future environment in which a multitude of disposable, non-biodegradable containers will fossilize and become trace evidence of our 21st century throwaway culture – geological forms in the shape of industrial mass-production.
