Found objects and mixed media, 68″x70″x40″

In the book “Cradle to Cradle,” William McDonough and Michael Braungart talk about products you would find in a typical landfill today.

“Most of these products were made from valuable materials that required effort and expense to extract and make, billions of dollard worth of material assets. Unfortunately, all of these things are heaped in a landfill, where their value is wasted.”

My work incorporates the throw-away landfill items with a return to a life overtaken with growing organisms. I attempt to mimic the “cradle to cradle” concept McDonough and Braugart explore in their book. — Sandra Osip
