Part votive dedication, part patchworked assemblage, the artists arrange objects, emotions and thoughts, referencing  pop culture, personal memories and materials of mass production. The outcome is a haphazard construction made of disparate parts; tiles and found images dedicated to the moments that have been, nostalgia for the early 2000s denim of our teens, moulds of teeth enclosed with ocean pearls. The quasi monolith that stands, attempts to reconcile the feelings of the late 21st century heartbroken sapiens.
