  • When I saw (or heard) ozone layer, it immediately left an impact on me. The chiming metal sounded like millions of voices chattering in there own languages and tones.

  • This art is beyond amazing! The movement of the pieces leads me to picture something like them on a runway as a couture gown.

    — Sammy

  • Finding beauty in the castoff and the ephemeral...that truly is the human condition in the twenty first century!

  • They force me to consider all that we discard everyday, and what we can create if we only look at the world with an artistic and creative eye.
