Destruct Construct

Heather Rasmussen's project DestructConstruct is based on found photographs of shipping container accidents downloaded from the Internet. Heather abstracts the scenes of the catastrophes, removing the original context and placing the damaged containers, rendered simply out of colored paper, onto a seamless background. This process transforms the containers into pristine patterns of color and shape, thereby confusing scale and altering the perception of the shipping container as an object. The paper is now seen as fragile, crushed or torn due to an unknown circumstance.
