Using materials that include found objects, natural materials and waste, Smith responds to observations gleaned from her surroundings. Some are ephemeral and others more permanent, acknowledging that existence must encompass both growth and disintegration. For instance, canvas used as temporary winter insulation becomes the substrate for fugitive dyes, which alter gradually over time. In another work, Chord, dried iris leaves bind together a sculpture that may degrade and disappear.
