Human Sprawl explores humanity’s tendency to live in excess with personal consumption impacting biodiversity. Born from waste, these sculptures are created from thick kiln-cast slabs of tempered window glass destined for the landfill. The animals are then photographed in urban landscapes that have replaced their natural habitat with light shining through the glass creating eerie ghost-like memorial portraits.
These sculptures are being held for exhibition in 2023 at the Leighton Art Centre. Several more sculptures based on Albertan plant life are soon to start production.
