one man’s junk
one man's junk questions what happens when an object shifts from a prized possession to a nonentity, and asks you to find value amongst junk, waste and the discarded. Laura Moore hand-carves blocks of limestone into outdated electronic devices. Contradicting the indispensability that most discarded electronics face, these tributes monument how once-valuable objects become undesired commodities.
“Stone, the material of my work, moves me in principal because it is familiar and I find its resistance stimulating. It is the monuments and sculptures that tell our history, it shapes our continents while intriguingly remaining mutable.” – Laura Moore, Artist Statement
