"The impetus for some of these pieces springs from the debris found in San Francisco, a result of homelessness and mental illness, as well as a physical manifestation of the failures of consumerism for the individual.

"In my work, I address questions about consumerism through sculptures and installations created with the leftover packaging of consumables and related materials of all types -- plastic shopping bags, shampoo and water bottles, various cords, cable and tubing, etc. I make a wire framework and attach the materials on top of one another," he writes.
