The Future Comes From Leftovers

How To Be Alive While Alive distills themes of fragility, strength, potential and our temporal existence into simple arrangements that are intended to be read as visual poems. Using odds and ends I've accumulated over the years, ubiquitous objects I encounter in my daily life and natural artifacts, they utilize symbolism and the embedded significance objects take on in our lives. They are at once deeply personal, many of the objects hold unique and specific signifigance in my life, but intentionally oblique so that viewers can find their own meaning within the image.
