In the summer of 2021, I completed a site-specific art project near Oak River, Manitoba, in the form of two exhibitions in a barn loft on my parent's acreage. These two shows, Picture Plastic Perfect and I AM CONSUMER 2.0, involved two subjects: children’s art and post-consumer debris. As this project happened in part to due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the aim was to create a positive experience during this difficult time for a community that has few opportunities to participate in contemporary art. In both shows, I used post-consumer waste as material, sourced either from the supplies accumulated and used in the process of learning art, or from the detritus created by my day-to-day consumption.
