I have always been a maker of things.
As a child there was nothing I couldn't make out of cardboard, packing foam or leftover scraps. I continued with this resourceful approach to making things deep into the years of Mix CDs and collaged high school love letters.Now, under the name Cardboard Spectacle I offer up a contemporary interpretation in the spirit of that work.
I am in many ways a scavenger: I prefer found materials and repurposing the waste that’s created by other creative industries or found in the unending piles of missing matter stuffed into the flood of packages the internet has sent out into the world. Taking these overlooked materials and applying unconventional media (painting with Wite-Out or using nail polish as an adhesive, for example), to express my interest in patterns, codes and rules, and abstracted information, I create works that highlight the beauty that can be created out of even the most overlooked junk.
