Rysyk’s personal practice uses semiotics through object-making to express her concerns on modern world-systems. Contemplating and responding to environmental issues is important facet of her work. She explores concepts of decay and preservation within ecosystems and environments. Jessica communicates humankind’s relationships with the environment and mass-consumption through object-based metaphors. Please visit jessicarysyk.com.
