I am intrigued by discarded materials, such as newspapers and old books. However, the stuff I am really working with when I transform cultural waste are the stories they hold and the connection we have with them. I want to explore, with my hands, the evolution of our story – and who we are, you and me, without the story between us. Connection, transformation and communication, exactly!
