a Dream
Artist's Statement

Our sculpture and installations embody the essence of opulence while being constructed of materials that typically end up in the trash.  We mine popular culture searching for discarded materials that people use trying to reach their goals.  Whether it is a romance novel someone reads to transport them into a dream reality, a religious track promising the glory of eternal life, or a lottery ticket that gives the possibility of a future full of rich decadence; we use these remnants to re-create people’s dreams.
