Kathryn Spence, American, b. 1963
Spence’s piece addresses issues of social justice in how we relate with animals and the greater environment, as well as ethical questions of how we operate as a consume-and-discard culture; a behavioral choice that has consequences for our world and all of its living creatures. The act of creating anew from that which has been abandoned as unusable speaks to the power we have in our daily lives to make a palpable impact on the world around us.
