Body of Work "Landfill"
the summer of 2016 I was the artist in residence at the Haliburton School of Art
+ Design. For this residency I worked with the school and the local landfill to
create several works of art to show the effect of the landfill on the
spending time at the landfill I was amazed at the amount of waste we produce. I
brought home with me a sense that I needed to continue using this theme in my
art - working
with discarded objects to bring awareness to the public of the amount of waste
our society is producing.
