Projects

Art Projects:

  • You’ve Been NOTICEDThe interactive installation, “You’ve Been Noticed” is a hypothetical organization that aims to address the very real psycho-social needs of individuals in our particular culture and time due to violence, racism, and inequalities. Part of the installation will feature small kits in reflective mylar bags that will be available as take-aways located below the mirrored logo. One set on the right will be offered for those that are ready “To DO” something including a “know your rights” handout and other identified items in partnership with local activists. The set on the left shelves will contain information “To Heal” including information from the National Alliance on Mental Illness, the seven stages of grief, and available hotlines all identified in partnership with a mental health professional. The phone number listed will be an active, recorded line available for participants to engage. I hope to create cathartic moments of relief and reflection.
