Those Were The Salad Days

Installation
Cement, blue hemp thread, tin cans, wood, inflatable letters, lightbox
2016

This installation pulls the viewer through 3 disparate rooms, each containing objects with contrasting materials, yet all objects lead into each other. Inflated party balloon letters are left in a heap on a sun dappled floor beneath a sign urging the viewer to eat all they can in an hour. More of these letters are to be seen across a darker room containing 4 constructed blocks, stacked to form a larger object. This constructed object describes the exact shape of the final form nestled against the remaining balloon letters: A block of solid concrete with tin cans and lengths of cord running through. A child’s game. A child’s party. These were the salad days.
