Blunt Guts

Working with blunt guts is an attempt to prevent wastefulness. Creating dreads or bonsai trees as a way of identifying not only myself in other nonsentient materials, but also to explore the idiosyncrasies of American garbage.

found stone from Marcus Garvey Park, medical gauze, permanent marker, 2016-17

 

This found object sculpture is an attempt to articulate the gentrification & destruction of culture that comes with it. This is happening rapidly all over New York City. Using native objects from the area is a way of me showing respect & empathizing with those who visit & enjoy the park while they still can.

Installed somewhere in Marcus Garvey Park in Harlem.
