It is more than a Shopping Cart…

The shopping cart is the ultimate symbol of American consumer culture. 

By combining this symbol with found materials that emote blight and decay, I am expressing my disillusionment with the idealized “American Dream” concept in which equality of opportunity is available to any and all Americans.

I Am A Placemaker

Creative placemaking evokes shared emotions.

Art experiences can transform peoples’ perception of being different into a recognition of being the same, as humans. This inspires mutual trust and understanding, unifying and strengthening community identity and pride.
