Found Objects


These works were created using objects that I find on the streets of Mexico, in the trash, reclaimed from recycling centers, and in thrift stores north of the border.


It has been twenty years since I saw images of Joseph Cornell's work and thought: 


"that's for me."


Since then, saving objects from the landfill and breathing new life into them still keeps me awake, late into the night.


Eternal thanks to my love, Eli Hans. My favorite objet trouvé. 

Thanks so much for looking,

Joseph Bennett
