Artifacts of Industry positions industrial plastic waste as an Anthropocene artifact that records humanity’s impact on the environment. My multimedia sculptures begin with casts of factory scraps—evidence of processes that occurred in other places and time periods. Working with the forms of these industrial remnants, I contemplate their pasts and their histories, and I imagine the experiences that imbue and shape each object. In transforming these artifacts, I aid their transition, rebirthing them into a new phase of existence.
