The Remains of Our Immortality, Sites 1 and 2

the remains of our immortality: sites 1 and 2.
6’x3’x10” each
mixed media (cardboard, wood glue, jute, scrap wood)

I carved two 6’ long x3’ high reliefs in cardboard. The cardboard came from my work in retail. I decided to make this piece in the style of an archeological expedition, as if our culture were halted today and unearthed in the future –like what had happened in Pompeii. What would people think we valued? What could they tell about our culture based on our relics, our garbage? This was what I was thinking about when I began to undertake this project.
