“Using clay, I build ornate depictions of birds being consumed by ecological succession from their habitats. I carve every feather, bill, and talon. I then engulf the birds with nodes that sprout and spread on their surfaces. These nodes are inspired by the ecological succession made up of flora, foliage, fungi and coral from the habitats of the selected species. The growths weigh down the birds paralleling the weight of trauma from environmental destruction, suspending them in a state of being devoured.”  

“I ask the audience to observe acts of annihilation and question what is worth preserving.”
