Through the reimagination of these forgotten items, this exploration of material was made to comment on the use of our natural resources. Through transformation they present these items in an unconventional way; putting them on display and asking the viewer to reflect.

Deconstructed aluminum cans, cut into thin strips and woven together to form this two-dimensional wall hanging. Recycled aluminum cans were chosen for their complex and intricate shapes, when cut and unraveled. The strips were interlaced with placement in mind to create unity and distort reality.

Weaving elongated plastic bags through a series of 6-pack soda rings formed this piece. The foundation of this structure is composed of 6-pack soda rings with long knotted plastic bags woven between; intertwining these similar but different forms of plastic.
