Amanda Mulcahy is a Chicago native who fancies herself an urban naturalist, collecting and documenting the minutiae of daily life for further studio study. She has been examining the detritus that has been steadily accumulating in the surrounding neighborhood, specifically disposable plastics. By forever suspending single-use materials in her work, this contemporary trash has been transformed into fossil-like pieces reflecting what our times will leave behind.
