A sculpture built in response to the regulation of pest control in a recycling facility. Using electric shock fly traps and grid-like sculptures coated with syrup and collagen (animal fat), the work serves as a "last meal" for the flies. Metaphorically, the work references civilization’s complex relationship with waste & pest control, as well as, more broadly, the relationship between human beings and the systems we fabricate for our survival.

Made during a residency at Recology.
