CS: Where do you find inspiration for your work? What is inspiring you this year for Earth Day?
DS: I find inspiration everywhere: the hardware store, fancy department stores, outdoor markets, hotels, the movies, drug stores, art galleries, and museums. I am really open to everything and anything as a material in the toolbox! All’s fair!
This year, I am making a concerted effort to stop taking plastic bags at stores. I know I am late to the party on that one, but since I have been earlier to the party on many other things, it’s OK! I have been saving them for the last couple of years for that right, perfect moment where I can turn them into a thoughtful installation. Stay tuned . . . but secretly, I have not found the right moment yet! Looking, looking . . .
