Inspired by the implications poor waste disposal, predominantly the mass-produced, has on the natural environment. I produce anthropomorphic, fertile figures that invade our urban environments to raise awareness about our involvement in today's global situation about climate change.

The varied scale and place of my sculptural installations explore the lost space within our own concrete urban environments. Using modern architectural buildings as platforms, i investigate large and small domains that are not being fully utilized by humans. I replace these barren spaces with fertile imaginative sculptures created by humanities own waste products. Inspired by features from the natural world, flowers, insects, reptiles, mammals, bacteria and so on, each individual form is free to relocate to wherever the inhabitant pleases, establishing concepts of synergy that are ultimately at odds with the restrictions of today's global situation and characterized by social ignorance to the effects of global warming.
