Meanwhile in 3D

“Debasement Sale” was created in 1986 for “Underground Seattle,” an exhibition curated by Larry Reid for the Center On Contemporary Art (COCA). Arising from experiences touring the ruins in Mexico and my growing awareness of the history of US involvement in Latin America as well as several years working as a window dresser in Seattle, “Debasement Sale” commented on materialist consumer culture and the cost/benefit of empire. This piece also brought into 3D my fascination with Mexico's Day of the Dead imagery.

Debasement Sale

This piece was created from cardboard, papier mache (including day-glow printed money), silk screen rags, and blacklight.
