Many of my images deal with plastic and its role as a disposable material. So much of our trash is made up of it, despite its qualities of permanence. Plastic bags fill to capacity before we tie them off with knots, making them transportable units of disposability. Though the individual action of disposing may be so instantaneous, simple, and innocent, my photographs show the progression of the collective action as trash gains density and gravity with accumulation. This exhibition of photos follows that path past the individual level to explore what, how, and where we throw things away, and the forms they take on after they exit our personal lives.
