My work explores changes in perception of value and how this can open up possibilities and potential previously discarded and unseen. Casting a drink can started to reference the introduction of the container deposit scheme in the ACT, where previously cans were thrown away but now coveted by some as a potential source of self-sustainability, yet this possibility is still dismissed as a waste of money by others. My hope is that the audience can see the familiarity of the can at the same time as its potential to transform into other possibilities of potential value; and value of different perspectives akin to my experience as a queer disabled artist. Working without colour draws attention to the pure form and creates contrast to the colour in my other works. I wish to acknowledge the support and mentorship of glass artist Luna Ryan who assisted me in creating these works at Canberra Glassworks.
