In this dimensional tableau, common objects are reinterpreted as cultural icons that depict the progressive ideals of west coast living. A row of bronzed Barbie dolls in sunglasses embodies California's beaches and healthy lifestyle. Above them are flowers made from reclaimed stainless steel spoons.  Across the bottom swims a Pacific Steelhead hammered from a single piece of recycled iron.
