Remnants of Our Existence:Collected objects from Jamaica Bay
In November 2021 I walked along the shoreline of Jamaica Bay in Queens, New York and dug up rusted objects buried in the sand. Eroded from years of living in the ocean, these manmade objects are now unidentifiable. As I revisit these objects in 2023, I am creating images using a scanner bed as the camera, placing collected objects arranged with their shedding rust and algae particles to abstractly depict images resembling space, the universe, the cosmos. These images are printed as archival pigment prints.
