I have worked with recycled materials ever since I was a child growing up in Kenya. In this body of work, I have taken recycled cans, and transformed them into contemporary art sculptures. The new and the not so new cans are stitched into each other with various gauges of steel wire. This body of work celebrates the transformation of recycled material into contemporary art. It is a celebration of bringing together the old and the new.
