I have always had a fascination for my traces: what I leave behind, what I discard. I wanted create collection of images telling a story about waste, its overproduction, aesthetic, structure, and variety. There are many aspects of waste that inspire me: it is a trace of a human being; it has its own aesthetic; it lives on long after one takes it out; it is an artefact, an object, carrying a record of truth and physicality. In my series I wish to ask: What is left when we go? What our waste is? Why do we produce so much of it? Can waste become art?
