You might think he is being wasteful, but hear his real intent behind his work from his interview with Liana Voia:
"When the remnants of life are imposed on an object, and that's true especially with the carving work that I do, it infers a past history or a previous life that had been lived, so again where people see my work as macabre, I often see it as hopeful, as the remnants of a life. Despite the fact that the life has ended, at least that life had a beginning and middle as well, so often by imparting these bodily elements to inanimate objects it reclaims or reanimates them in a virtual way."
Lasserre teaches us all that there is more to life than what may just appear on the surface. It is about the journey rather than any specific destination.
