Artist’s statement

Throughout my body of work I explored the issue of procrastination and the idea that procrastination can end in regrets. I was also influenced by the amount of people who have regrets because they don’t pursue their dreams and wishes. I chose to investigate the concept of procrastination as I personally believe there is no time for procrastination; that the present should be lived to prevent regrets in life. Choices I made to specifically address procrastination included found objects which I used to represent aspects in which procrastination occurs and how it can have negative effects.
