I create works from recycled materials and convert them into pieces that help viewers make the connection between art, technology and sustainability.

Some of the most daunting difficulties our planet faces today are environmental: Global warming, intensive farming, and habitat destruction, amongst others. A sustainable future requires a balance between people, planet and profit. Keeping this balance represents a challenge in a world of hyper population and aggressive business. I want to create awareness and engage viewers in a conversation about our ecological and social responsibilities and conceive potential ideas that can help enable a greener future.

By removing computer components from the waste stream and using them as part of my work, I am contributing to lessening their environmental impact. Ultimately, I want to further the understating of how technology is both a contributor to some of these problems and an enabler of solutions. By using recycled computer components in my work, I bring to the fore the key role that technology plays nowadays. Channeled in the “right” direction, technology can have a positive impact not only in our environment, but also in our economy and quality of life, leading us to a more secure and sustainable world.
