A number of items found in this work were located along hiking trails or streams in Wisconsin including plastic casings from gun shot shells near a lake (mostly likely used for duck hunting). I was working on this three dimensional collage during the time in 2004 that a controversy was brewing in England over Fox Hunting or the prohibition of it. Not intended to be a statement in either direction, there is a red fox hiding in this work among the numerous recycled items.

Nature continues its renewals and recycling. I find it meaningful to make landscapes which speak to this recycling aspect of nature while also recycling as well: A landscape about recycling by making a landscape of recycled things.
