I want to start on a personal note about the conception of “State of Being”: Four years ago on a sunny day in a city dumpsite nearby, I encountered a surreal world.

A huge barn collecting waste produced daily, vast and dark after the sunlight, air hard to breathe in the middle of summer. Overwhelmed, my camera handy, I took a few shots. Captured in the images - shooting beams of light from the open skylights, immense columns of sparkling airborne dust floating above a garbage dump site - Garbage Heaven.
