"My collages, digital drawings, recycled paper and coroplast installations, stem from an investigation into consumer desires to purchase an organized lifestyle. Using catalogue glossies from Crate & Barrel, Ikea, Pottery Barn, and others, I create a hybrid-form of organization that speaks about the many tastes and design influences surrounding our consumer culture. My research focuses on furniture that functions solely as storage; it contains one’s belongings as it continues to perpetuate a want of more. I am intrigued by such a device’s ability to eliminate an accumulation of belongings into one unified object and thus the accumulation’s ability to live under a minimal guise of solidarity."
