The constantly overlooked debris left behind from industry is the basis of this thesis. I will discuss how these massive piles of wreckage that remain after the demise of buildings in our urban landscape play a part in my current sculpture and how they reflect back on my earlier investigations of the human viscera and of our own remains. My interests lie not only in the similarities of the functionality of these two systems, but in their aesthetics as well.
