What Remains

 

"What Remains" is an installation made from post-consumer waste, the scraps from an industrial felt from which large circles were punched.  Coiling the outer, scalloped edge into a variety of nest-like forms, I created an environment wihin which people could lie and play.  The interior portion of the scrap was used to create a hanging mobile above.  The installation both encourages a creative reuse of something that otherwise would end up in a landfill and begs the question: at what point will we be forced to nest in our own industrial waste?
