Grand Rapids Art Museum

The Waste Land is an installation of otherworldly machines, each of which are incomplete, cracked, broken, and clearly obsolete. They are being overgrown and pulled apart by strange and alien plant-forms. Above them, lights imitate the effect of sunlight steaming through a broken wall. The scene is one of post-apocalyptic mystery, as if it is the undisturbed leavings of a lost civilization. This work is about the passage of time, and the overwhelming wonder of our inability to stand against it.
