SANTUARY: AN ECHO OF FRUSTRATION
With these works, I responded to questions related to work and the everyday. My central questions were, “what is work?” and “what is our relationship to work?”
While we work for many different reasons, we have a specific cultural relationship to it given that we live in a work-based society. Indeed, many of us have a variety of work responsibilities in addition to numerous personal responsibilities, which are in fact, work. These responsibilities create structures that form our identities as well as providing hope, distraction and a bit of frustration.
During this time, I found myself most attracted to materials that come from daily activities—ubiquitous materials that become invisible, forgotten or thrown away. These materials tell a story of what we do while allowing me to move fluidly between media and reappropriate ready-made objects.
