For the last ten years, the focus of my work has been community-generated social sculpture projects, many of them large-scale. Community engagement and teamwork are crucial to each of my projects, as the people I collaborate with gather, process, and transform materials, building a sculpture piece by piece, while also making decisions about the final result. Each member of the community chooses her/his own level involvement in my projects.
My goal is connect sustainable development, the environment, and social networks through my art practice, creating interactive experiences with communities, especially with kids. All this time, my work has revolved around the process of using material “things" that people normally use for a short time and then classify as “trash”.
