“From Janie to Janie” is a survey of natural and man-made debris, found, photographed and collected from an approximate one mile stretch of waterfront over a period of one year. The man-made items are represented in collages, titled ReAppropriation, either as they were found or rephotographed in the studio. The intent of these collages is to uniquely account for each and every piece of debris, regardless of size and tedium, grouped loosely by association. The images give a serious but somewhat comic insight into the types of debris, quantities found and how stable it has been in the environment. Many of the items are also represented individually by categories or grouped into vignettes. An unintended exploration of the naturally occurring anatomy developed as the project progressed. These items were explored both as they lay on the beach and in the studio.
