This series of sculptures is a playful and humorous study on the changing rhythms of urban life, development, and life in an ever-changing cityscape. The frenzied construction and constant flux have altered our ideas and identities of our cities. I am interested in the slippages created by the uncertainty in terms of identity and how they allow something (or someone) to traverse through several different or new identities. The sculptures make use of discarded materials sourced from the city, those that do not serve their specific functions anymore. These materials, along with the fabric cacti-like growths, come together as new suggestions or possibilities. Lines and shapes from around the city inspire their forms and they are a nod to the tenacity and adaptability that fuels growth in all spheres of our lives. They become ways to re-look at something we would normally take for granted and perhaps find new meanings within the everyday.
