Artist Statement

Marshall McLuhan said “The Medium is the Message”.

My dead electronics Medium speaks to our experience with science and technology. We depend on our electronics but they break, wear out and better ones are almost always available. At best, the old ones get responsibly recycled. Mishandled, toxins are released or precious metals go to waste.

I select from a wide variety of electronic trash for visual and structural features, add color, and create large assemblages.
