Brent Crothers uses reclaimed copper pipes, garden hoses and rubber tires to build his sculptures featured in Synergy. These materials are slow to biodegrade after they have been thrown away, giving the products a long second life after their intended use has run its course. The forms are egg-shaped, alluding to birth and the future. It is curious that the eggs are each the size of a person; serving as monuments that question the impact materials like these will have on future generations.
