world of the thingamabobs (2014) 

I grew up around junk art and jerry rigs. I would ride with my Pop in his orange van and we would go to the city dump. 
After leaving our trash, we would peruse the area and collect treasures to clutter our home once again. 

World of the thingamabobs addresses the disposed--what many would call trash.
The objects, which seem to coalesce in their shared heritage, cast unique shadows in response to the visceral imagery of the projections.
