"[on feeding, spitting...} Dictated by the interaction of the innate properties of earth, paper and time, the artist understands the work as a continuous collaborative effort “once I had reached that perceived ending, I could then mix the dust into a paste and meld it into something new... the possibilities really were truly endless”. This cyclical nature reveals how deeply connected the work is to the organic structures of the world and one is reminded of the earth as underground the surface, beyond the urban, immediate environment. Adams stance of making art from a sustainable method, not to mention the fact that the work is also temporal, contributes to an era of contemporary artists resilient to the mass-produced art market that prevails modern life."
