ALIEN BLOOM offers post-industrial as landscape, constructed from tossed-out plastic containers collected from around neighborhoods in different countries.
In ALIEN BLOOM all resources are marshaled and modeled and put to use to illustrate the transformation of disposable objects, otherwise unnoticed, crafted into an endless aesthetic exploration. Here is the space of ontological celebration, representation of discarded, it is a private “Garden of Melancholy” and an existential testing ground for caring for “others”–cast away from humanity–crude excrement of society transformed.
