“The found object, a discard from the utilitarian world, lies idle, awaiting destruction, renewal or metamorphosis. It is a reminder of a person’s presence, a witness to time. Relying on my intuition, I transform these pieces, leaving my own traces on them. I question common ways of looking at objects and at society’s values. The results bring memories to the surface, and toy with the imagination.”
