This ongoing project is an attempt to contemplate on the overwhelming presence of the material of vinyl in our world. We do not pass a single day without encountering vinyl and its materiality, yet we most often overlook its nature.

Vinyl is a curious material that can be soft, flexible, tough, and sharp all at the same time. I began this project in 2019, imagining that making artworks with used plastic bags and pieces of vinyl that are found on streets could be a way to recycle them.
