Artwork > Concrete Necropolis

Concrete Necropolis invites viewers to consider what is permanent. What are the artifacts we will leave behind? What happens to the lightweight, inconsequential objects we call disposable but are in fact as enduring as the things we intend to last? It is difficult to grasp the permanent nature of the temporary objects of convenience, many of which sustain our existence, but cost so little to produce that they are often given away. Once disposed of, these objects cease to exist in our minds, but they continue to exist somewhere else, somewhere out of sight. How do we reconcile their transience in our lives with their longevity in the world? This work seeks to understand these objects by transforming them, by seeing them in new terms -- perhaps in the way the rest of the natural world sees them, rather than how we do.
