found foam and cardboard
Miniature monuments. Carefully sorted and stacked, the foam inserts and protective layers form delicate constructions. At first playful and plastically cute the tiny constructs quickly become earnest, attempting to stand on their own as models for places we could potentially invest with a meaning. Yet, the humble origins and material identity refutes ambitious posing for an un-present future. Instead, the feeble stacks mourn themselves: objects with protective custody revoked and symmetrical cavities empty.
