Leaving explores decay, death and its aftermath. Using human made objects found crushed on the street and insects found dead, this series attempts to create a narrative for existing and not existing. Humans are inherently producers of stuff that often gets discarded. In the summer,and spring we see death all around us in the form of insects and road kill. The discarded stuff seemed like a fitting background for these dead creatures. These assemblages both pay homage to life and loss, to the passage of time and to the mystery of death.
