SINGLE USE PLASTIC
A study of human lifestyles using found objects. I wanted to find some way to encapsulate human experiences without photographing human beings. I collected various objects that represented various aspects of the human experience, specifically choosing to use single use objects. I wanted to show how much consumable objects have a big impact on our identity and experience and how many things we dispose of on a regular basis. Condoms are used as a contraceptive, trapping the sperm, something that is an essential ingredient in human life. I wanted to use the idea of ‘trapping’ a human experience through posing objects inside of condoms. The condoms are tied on a manner indicating they have just been used and are ready to be disposed of. As you view this series I want you to notice the objects within the condoms as well as how the condoms wrap around them.
