My work explores the cast-off byproducts of our progress. As the responsibility for evolution becomes our own and our technologies advance at an exponential rate, what is left by the wayside? What grows in the wake of our post-human existence? Is it a benign form of fungal growth that holds the cure for cancer and Alzheimer's? Is it some mechanical superflu that will return us to a pre-industrialized state? Could it be some self aware creature, growing under the sea, that waits to destroy Tokyo? The periphery of our progress is as important as goals and aspirations that fuel the headlong rush forward. My work turns over rocks, looks in closets, and pokes that thing on slithering on the seashore. I hope to bring attention to wonder and fear that grow at the edges of our attention.
