What happens to that meaning and value once an object becomes obsolete?
Do we take it and reassign it something else, something better? Do we take the time to question the journey the object has been on prior to being in our possession? Do we actively consider what happens to the object once it is no longer of use to us?

Karen Rubado’s practice is a culmination of these questions, an investigation into the nature of objects and the appearance-disappearance – the reappearance of value.

Taking these objects, most of which are destined for a landfill or a pile of inorganic waste awaiting collection on the side of the road, she literally weaves them into something beautiful and art gallery worthy. Therein lies the ‘value’ of her work.
