My project is a public art installation titled “untitled ism” for Nuit Blanche 2013, focusing on various social issue (racism, sexism, etc.) and how to end it. The project will consist of over 100 custom printed black balloons that will be adhered to an exterior wall or surface. The viewers will be invited to participate by completing the phrase “I would end_______ISM by________”.
The viewers are encouraged to share their views on social media by taking a photo of their phrase and attaching the hashtag #endism.
This initial installation is the beginning of a year-long project that will extend into Nuit Blanche 2014. The project will then convert to an online format that will extend past 2014. Viewer input from the year long project will be added to the online component.
I usually work on several bodies of work concurrently. My installations are usually site specific, temporary installations. In this case, I would like to rework and continue this specific installation into a looping transitional video.
