From Dumpster to Dinning Room
This body of work is about giving trash rebirth. The function of the trash material had reached an end, but those very pieces are being reinvented and infused with a new purpose.
The form comes from press molding various plastic waste products. This creates some exciting results such as leaving very industrial-like lines and marks on the pieces. These details are usually overlooked or hidden under paper or labels. However, the point is not to centralize on the “machine” quality of the marks, but rather to allow them to serve only as highlights to a more “human” piece that’s characterized by its individuality and uniqueness.
The remaking of otherwise spent materials is meant to provoke thoughts on reconsidering how we use every-day materials as well as reminding us to be environmentally responsible with our waste.
