Andrea Vail investigates contemporary American society and its objects -- specifically home goods deemed stylistically obsolete, or unattractive by the standards of 21st century mainstream culture to create sculpture and collaborative exchange. Her research explores trends of mass-production, habits of consumption and systems of artifice and authenticity.
