Image Statement: What will be left when the Doomsday Clock strikes midnight? Perhaps a world encased in plastic debris breaking down into ever smaller particles but never disappearing, like a swirling milky way. This piece documents our potential decline using the form of a vintage woman's shift as a shroud of sorts. Time becomes fluid as the past melds with the future.
