Pollination 402 : Take a finger and put it where it does not belong

October 2018 - Present

This is an interactive art piece about the body, masses and color. 402 white plaster fingers were cast, molds sourced from all genders.
The audience is invited to take fingers and place them somewhere it does not belong.The bottom of each plaster finger uses social media tools to show the fingers' source, and to submit photos of fingers that have invaded spaces. Some interpreted this to entail bodily touch and insertion. Other fingers have been placed in restrooms, restaurants, hallways and more throughout CA and Colorado.

Improperties : Tag It. 

 December 2018

"Improperties" is a piece about the act of tagging as reclamation of space. The criminalization of graffitti functions as a distraction from the real crime and injustice of urban gentrification, which lays in the hands of those with more money than ethics. The delicate interior references Bronx 1970's culture and aesthetics, as an ode to the hometown of hip hop.
