A cycle of sleeping and waking up.

 

In the Good Night series, I build objects and cycle them through narratives of destruction, change, performance and stages of installations. The project confronts a hostility between instilled dreams from a suburban upbringing (expensive vehicles, affluent lifestyles, privilege, naive privilege, patriotism), self-worth determined by winning, earning, goals, and a dream of being told I'm good.  

 

The deaths the sculptures go through are steps in the course of the series--X5 Mulch being the first step followed by 747 Skin and 22 Floors.
