艺术家Rachel Bradley出生于宾夕法尼亚州。“2006年起,专业从事黑白摄影的我放弃了我的主要创作媒介——相机和暗房,而开始了一些别样的艺术探索方式。运用这些偶然拾得的东西,通过手工和组合,完成了Hellboxes系列。这一系列中承载了我的癖好:运用这些曾经定义了我们生活的物件来救助这个被抛弃了的社会,叙述故事,保存记忆和个人史。我夜以继日不知疲倦的收集这些渺小的却闪闪发光的东西,被丢弃的列表、玩具,色彩缤纷的糖纸,枯叶,组合和存放在利用各种尺寸和材质的格子/箱子中。” –  Rachel Bradley

Artist Rachel Bradley born in Pennsylvania. “Departing from a background of traditional b/w photography, I abandoned the camera and darkroom as my primary artistic medium in 2006 in favor of a different approach. Using found objects, assemblage and handcraft, Hellboxes series have emerged. Hellboxes are containers for my obsessions: for salvage in a throw-away society, for telling stories and preserving memory and personal history with the objects that define our lives. On the street, at work, day in and day out, I collect objects: small, shiny things, discarded lists, lost toys, colorful wrappers, dead leaves. Utilizing containers of different sizes and materials.” – Rachel Bradley
