“Most of my pieces involve old-style scissors-and-paper collage, a humble but immensely satisfying medium. I like the process of combining seemingly unrelated images (old photos, magazine clippings, coloured bits of paper, images found in old books or on the internet) into a different reality that might startle, amuse or provoke.
I live and work in the Pacific Northwest, on an island in the middle of a lake, surrounded by a big city.”

Have a hard time waking up in the morning? Try this alarm clock, which begins shredding a dollar bill (or your choice of banknote) from the time the alarm goes off.
Be careful, though – Mashable reminds us that willfully destroying American currency is a federal offense.
