In today’s world, life without plastics is incomprehensible. Plastics have become an integral part of our homes and our everyday lives.
In this series, I chose to take a close look at the transparent outer skins that are used to protect and contain, as well as reveal and display, consumer goods. I removed the objects these plastic packages once contained and rendered these functional three-dimensional items into two-dimensional drawings. By both flattening the space and exaggerating the scale of these objects, I have shifted them into a new territory of reading. That which we would normally overlook or discard is memorialized through photography and made into a precious object that demands attention.
These photograms invite viewers to engage and examine the outlines of the form from afar as well as discover the imperfections and unclean surfaces of plastic from close-up.
