My work is critical of the global commodification and the haphazard capitalism driving waste and polluting the environment, driving the globe towards catastrophic point of no return. Mine is a discourse on global climate change and the environmental issues of today, Aspiring to highlight issues and facilitate a greater civil discourse and awareness of such issues. My work seeks to inspire strategies useful to the public and to commercial entities in order to help return the natural environment to a stable, suitable, and livable place for all living beings. Using creative strategies that utilize the discarded to create beauty out of waste, displaying the beauty and potential of the discarded and unused materials created by global capitalism and commodification in order to bring a greater awareness and inspire new strategies for taking on climate change.
