Amassing Subsistence
Amassing Subsistence draws from memories of the meditative, repetitive rhythms of domestic chores and simple daily actions. The process of accumulating, interacting with, and transforming discarded household objects into biomorphic, abstract forms references the ephemeral and shifting qualities of time and nature.
