Recycled Landscape

The things we use and throw away collect in piles, in yards waiting to relocate and decompose. Overwhelming masses form as these materials accumulate and develop into semi-permanent landscapes. These landscapes are rich in color, texture, and form. As they are approached for closer examination, tangible objects emerge from the rest. A rusty mound of metal becomes a pile of hubcaps, bike frames, and soda cans. When separated from the context of a group, objects allow themselves to take on different meanings. Each item has a separate history, but all have accumulated in their present location for evaluation and potential dismissal. Just as a wire frame can be recycled into new material, a rabbit carcass is recycled into the earth.
