Fragments of Space Debries

"Fragments of Space Debris" represents a sculptural inquiry into the celestial debris encircling our planet. In the current era, where the spotlight is largely fixated on the urgency of climate change, the predicament we confront beyond our earthly bounds often remains in relative obscurity. Yet, the entanglement of our atmosphere with space debris offers a captivating artistic terrain.

My creative journey involves the manipulation of aluminum and an assortment of materials to craft levitating satellites and kinetic mobiles. Guided by the concept of "readymades," I harness materials and objects initially purposed for utility, reshaping them into fresh, innovative configurations that breathe new life into their essence.
