Person (Help Us, We’re Broke), 2018
Within this project, the idea of the starving artist is put on full display and paraded around campus as a persona best described as a guerilla mascot for UC Berkeley’s Art Practice department. Walking around with a sign asking for donations to get things such as mops, food for openings, and supplies, a mascot (modeled after a Person doodle) went in public with a can on stick, rattling its small donations to plead for more.
The Ballot, 2017
The Ballot consists of 13 piñatas, each representing issues often in surrounded by controversy . This installation puts the audience in the role to decide which piñatas go down in front of their audience. Much like the larger authorities that control the opportunities and options of citizens, the audience can remove the access of the piñatas from others.
