By providing these objects with narratives I am in a way rewriting their history. These fabricated histories allow for more understanding behind the psychological affects of the unquestioned, which in turn represents a divergent reality.

These expectations of normalcy are familiar in American culture, the objects or narratives evoke mindfulness. I feel that I can create conversations with more of a focus on conflicting thinking by intersecting found objects with 4D elements as well as industrial and natural materials. I truly believe we are living in opposing extremes, so for me this need for opposing narratives only feels natural, it allows for more focus on the future by exploring the past.
