            Using recycled materials found on local loading docks and in alleyways, Washburn creates post-Minimalist constructions that appear as swells of urban refuse. In each of her installations, Washburn paints scavenged wood, cardboard, or newspaper in institutional pastels—greens, pinks, and blues—and subsequently cements it all together to form a sedimentation of layered detritus. Washburn refers to her works as “spontaneous architecture,” emphasizing a bipolar urge to merge the accidental and the intentional.
