A Carton of Newports (front), 2021




In this iteration of "We are Living in an Open Edition," I documented a few cartons worth of crushed, trampled and discarded packs of various brands of cigarettes. The gestures embedded in these forms replaced the need for contact with others during a conflicted time of required isolation and longing. Through a vicarious relationship with refuse I can commune with the user, and  through the product of this investigation, with the viewer. In recognition of the plight this species of trash represents, I am donating %10 of the proceeds of 'Carton of Newports' to the American Cancer Society. This print is edition 2 of 10.
