I am interested in discarded/found objects, those that have lost their original function, located in unfamiliar places, sometimes broken or decayed. Such objects are a testimony to a journey or a specific event in time. In addition to objects I collect photographs, images, and excerpts of text which serve as inspiration for montaged works. Through the juxtaposition of seemingly unrelated images/objects new associations and fresh dialogues are created. The work is influenced by personal memories and collected human experiences.
