Hoping to print up these patches in the next couple days, send me an ask if you want to buy one!
Edit: These are now printed and available on my etsy!
Installation with video
When I started this piece I was thinking a lot about polyamorous relationships and how I felt that would be my ideal, but that I lack the emotional strength to carry it out successfully. I also really got into working with wax (I had just finished a sculpture where I coated McDonalds cheeseburgers in wax and I was super pumped to try something else). Having done strictly autobiographical work up to this point, this means that both the content and the medium were new grounds that I was treading on. It was a lot of fun carrying out the piece.
Overall the piece is very whimsical and childlike. It gives off the impression of a baby’s mobile. The video accompaniment has audio that sounds like an old music box. It is representative of my naivety and ignorance during the period of my life that I like to call my “casual dating years”.
So… I guess it ended up being autobiographical. Oh well!
