Wundervolle Totempfähle und andere monumentale Skulpturen aus Karton, Autoreifen, Plastikflaschen und Kinderspielzeug, die mühevoll von dem Fotografen David Welch für seine “Material World” Serie aufgebaut und abgelichtet wurden.

My work is a response to this contemporary consumer milieu. By treating artifacts of consumer culture as readymades, I create assemblages to form pseudo monuments, or totems, that serve as precarious externalizations of culture as social biography. The totems speak of accumulation and materiality and encourage debate about consumption, media, class, gender and the ways in which we feel compelled to consume.
