Francesca defines herself as an environmentARTist, eco-artivist or simply 'rubbish artist'. Torn between optimism and surrender, she is haunted by the idea of mankind’s imminent self-destruction. Yet, she believes in a future of resourceful innovation through re-thinking and reducing. It is this hope that is made visible through her work, which is composed almost entirely of rubbish and ‘found’ material. Her art invites us to detach ourselves from our anthropocentric views, and reconsider the everyday under a new light, where humans share the planet with 99.9% of other living creatures.
