A death mask was a traditional way of preserving the visage of someone who had recently passed away, often by taking a direct casting from the corpse in a material like wax or plaster. I use the death mask form to create figurative pieces that explore the materials of contemporary chemical and digital culture. I mix actual pharmaceuticals with pigment and cast unique works in plastic. First, I create an initial form in clay or wax that combines indented marks made by pills, credit cards, USB ports, and bottle caps and embeds these objects within the mold. This process produces a final unique cast work that contains indentations and extrusions of different shapes and objects. I also have a series where I apply epoxy resin to altered magazine pages, creating shiny, rigid, but delicate structures.
