  • Description:
    Walk The Line, School 33, Baltimore, MD, 2012 My sculptural series BARRICADES explores how specifically-shaped formations create an index of social conflict and how societies do (or do not) find solutions to those conflicts. I purposely juxtapose a common visual interpretation of “barricades” with the material I use –corrugated cardboard – which is sturdy but not lastingly durable, stable or resistant. Creating a visual barricade (which we suppose is a solid defense system between forces in conflict) out of cardboard ridicules the inherent meaning and converts the construction itself into an absurdity.The work conceptually questions systems of frontiers and barriers in social and political systems.
