My work deals with conflict, addiction, traumas, destruction. I reflect upon the non-functional individual, alienated, anesthetized and established on a society based on rush. The classification and the collection of rejected objects facilitate a connection between me and my environment, and evidence a clear intention to maintain it directly to its context. This elements at first sight, inevitably revaluates the objects that capitalism rejects through visible constructions of aesthetic contradictions, where the beauty is the ugly or avoided.
