I find myself drawn to remnants of our industrial society. Monuments that once stood as proud icons of commerce that are now relegated to the scrap heap speak to me and draw me toward them. Pop culture and urban textures, alongside debris, failing architecture and forgotten objects of lives past create a new dialogue when taken from their native habitat and recombined. Quickly disposing of our collective past as we march into the future, I feel an affinity towards objects left behind and find beauty in their accidental juxtaposition through decay. -Jay Vollmar
