My work examines the ubiquity of pollutions. My honest hope is to inform viewers that we do not necessarily need to be making any more disposable materials. I use remnants of 3D printing PLA filament, polyethylene netting, glass, wax, synthetic hair and thread, as representation of samples of sounds. In these works, I explore the complex relationship between 2D and 3D, hence the term “compressed sculptures.” The flattened sculptures contain their own destruction sound as well as their own shifting and changing. If the sound is the destruction of the thing, or breaking, or falling apart, does the thing recycle? Is it reborn? Is it given a new life? Does it transform into something new? What else can happen with these materials? In this case, they become art. But can they become something else, and do we hear the destruction of the materials happening? The sound pollution? A lot of pollution comes from sound. Sometimes, humans grow so accustomed to “background” or “white” noise that they do not even notice it is happening, and in some cases they cannot fall asleep without these noises. We should not assume that these beautiful but toxic materials are unchangeable. These materials are more than just unrecycled waste, they are the reflection of a dark capitalist meme that we are buying into and living in. My work does come out of being frustrated with humans' way of life, their insistence of tainting Earth. It is not even that I'm interested in thinking that I can change that, but it is such a frustrating part of the human condition.
