In my current body of work, I use images of objects that resonate with the viewer in a moment of memory and recognition. These objects, such as manually powered rotary eggbeaters or hook and claw can openers were once part of our daily experience. Once familiar, these objects are now forgotten, defunct or passé. Yet they speak to us about the effects of time, our perceptions of usefulness and technology. My work focuses on the effects of time on objects.
