Debris plays with the philosophy of Kintsugi, the Japanese practice of mending with gold. Mended objects convey a sense of the passage of time with relation to states of being. Repairing something that has been broken, scarred, fractured or shattered brings it new life — a rebirth — by embodying ruptures with a poignancy that comes from it’s past life while its new and altered presence transforms the past into an asymmetrical future.
Video images of trash will be projected onto and through a suspended glass environment mended with “gold”— a metaphor for recycling refuse and repairing the damage trash has made and continues to make on the environment.
