About the work
My work is made out of the plastic shards and remnants that flourish on famous Bondi Beach, my local beach, and other local Sydney beaches such as Rose Bay and Camp Cove. At times I combine these coastal plastics with pristine single-use industrial plastics. Sometimes I use these industrial bits on their own. The initial gathering and sorting process is followed by a threading of the plastic components onto strings of wire. The resulting sculptural garlands and mounds are reflections of my coastal home and its relation to the greater human landscape of waste and consumption.
