2017 Plaster, wood, gold plaques

This trophy series is to represent a reward for surviving the uncomfortable moments in life, no matter how mediocre those moments might be in the bigger picture. 

These trophies were a social practice as they acted as stress balls for subjects when personally confronted with intimate and uncomfortable questions. They are permanent markers of their anxiety in that moment. Thank you to my subjects: Alex Britt, Azucena Tello, Jackie Sin, Mykail Gholston, Alexis L Silva
