I gathered this trash on the North Rim of the Grand Canyon during the summer of 2016. It was one of the last pieces I made before leaving for Texas, but I still had a few finishing details to make that I did not want to rush. This was the first piece that I attempted to add a figure to and I feel that it was semi-successful! I think humans can play an important role in introducing scale to incredibly vast landscapes and I'm excited to continue to dabble. It was funny to return from the South Rim of the Grand Canyon at the end of the summer with fresh new trash and finalize this piece, almost as if the two ends of the canyon were in dialogue with each other.
