Later in life I earned a BFA in communication design, which became Lael Alon Design Studio, in 2002: a free-lance graphics operation.

The Japanese carried a tradition of tossing old (often not even damaged) items into a locally designated area, called a Gomi Pile. We furnished our home this way. Later, in the states, the tradition of “dumpster diving” and “trawling” for finds on the ground continued through resurrecting tossed items. Gomi Construction now seeks to follow in that tradition by collecting images and otherwise discarded ideas to share from an increasingly sustainable and environmentally responsible home / studio.
