silkscreen, 4" x 7" *** print sent to those households participating in the "Cupola Questions" survey.
Due to the recent trend of adding cupolas to new home constructions, I made survey about cupolas to research why people like them.
The door hanger opens up and reveals the survey and information about the project. If the person decides to send in the survey to me, I will send them an original screenprint about cupolas.

The Alternative Hustle
Screen Printed Book
11" x 14"
'The Alternative Hustle' explores how dance steps can be used to map out an event. I bought a disco dance instructional book at a garage sale one summer (which included a record for listening) and became obsessed with how the dance steps looked on the page. I wanted to know what happened INBETWEEN each prescribed dance step. If this mapping was truly realistic it would also include the other steps the couple would take during the dance (for example if they had to walk over to the punch bowl to get a drink). I mapped out some potential dance floor scenarios using the basic steps of disco.
'More Impermanent Than Sand'
Two children are building a sandcastle. Part of the sand dune behind them transforms into a wave, and the wave gets bigger as comes closer and closer. Eventually it reaches the children and crashes down on them. As the water recedes you can see that the children are actually made of sand. They wash away and the sand castle remains.
