The new installation which is called ENJOY THE SILENCE, will consist of over 5,000 hand cut paper circles, which are hand painted and attached to the walls. The number of circles, or "eyes" as I call them, will surround the viewer and fill the space as much as possible. The concept of the eyes is to evoke the feelings of paranoia and the general sensation of being watched. Currently, this feeling has become an issue with the new bathroom controversy all across the US.
This installation will be created on site at Materials for the Arts in Long island City. The official opening will be on Oct 20th from 6-8pm. I will be giving a small artist talk to go over the bathroom controversy and hopefully open up a conversation about bathroom fears and issues.
