  1. oddly intriguing. beautifully unsettling.

    we continue to see a trend, if you will, toward the unconventional use of "non-art" materials in sculpture, installation, even 2D works.

    her work is provocative- i will definitely visit her site.

  2. so true...non-traditional materials are so readily available and less expensive that i'm sure that in this economy, we may see more of these materials used.
