“I recycle materials…. I do it because it (the waste) bothers me”. Wendy Williams is creating & installing a large site-specific floor sculpture from recycled materials.
Sometimes its hard to sum up why I work a certain way or use the materials I do, but I’ll see if I can put it in to words that make sense. I recycle materials…. I pick things up all of the time and see if they can be re-used some way. I do it because it (the waste) bothers me. I use paper mainly. I like to prolong its life and give it an extra journey. That’s why I use means of travel a lot in my work – boats, planes, shoes etc.. all used to get from one place to another, mapping out the journey paper takes. I make them into colonies, grouping them together so that viewers can see just how much is there.
