Is an installation of objects and sculptures where water is thought of as a political element. By adopting a new materialist perspective, we can begin to unpack the ways in which the object shape, and are shaped by their interactions with each other.

Water is a vital resource that sustains life on earth, and yet it is often treated as a commodity to be exploited and sold. Plastic, on the other hand, is a ubiquitous material that has become a symbol of the destructive impact of human activity on the environment. The production and disposal of plastic waste have significant consequences for the health of the planet and disproportionately affect marginalized communities, like women, especially women of color are affected. Women are often at the forefront of efforts to address the environmental impacts of plastic waste, both as consumers and as activists. They are also disproportionately affected by the negative impacts of plastic waste, due to their role as caregivers and their reliance on natural resources for their livelihoods. 

The process of casting a human as a sculpture highlights the interconnectedness of human embodiment and materiality, and raises questions about the relationship between subjectivity, objectivity, and agency. A ladder embodies the potential for enabling human mobility and access to spaces that would otherwise be inaccessible, it also has the potential to shape our bodily experiences and movements. A trashcan embodies the waste and excess of human consumption, as well as the labor and infrastructure that enables us to dispose of our waste. Storage systems embody the history of human organization and classification, as well as the potential for both order and chaos, they can shape our attitudes toward consumption and accumulation.
