"Ultimately, I am drawn to the concept of how we assign value to objects and how that process fluctuates over time. A consumer economy is dependent upon the constant need for the purchase of goods. In order to acquire new products, the used, obsolete, outdated objects must be discarded; we seek to remove them from our everyday lives, our personal space, our visual field."
