I am thinking about materials. I am remembering that Sam doesn't use plastic bags. I am thinking about how upset she is by albatross colonies who are dying because they swallow so much plastic mistaking it for food floating on the surface of the Atlantic.
I am wondering whether it's possible to build purely with recycled materials. A decision like this will streamline the sculptural decisions as well as the conceptual ones, which will be useful. It will mean rather than spending money on materials. Materials gathering and processing needs more human time. I spend some time boiling and blending newsprint to see if I can get anything like clay to happen, but I can't.
