There is No Other
artificial flowers, construction foam, wood, tape, wire, clay, paint
7ft High x 6ft Wide x 3 ft deep
Simultaneously referencing memorials, congratulatory wreathes, gaudy kitsch and public declarations, this work consists of a pair of large (6 tall) wreathes with the words, There Is No Other written in glittery letters. The text evokes sentiment but is meant to also be political: it refers both to our planet and ourselves. No human being is other just as there is no other planet. We are all in this together.
There Is No Other is made from scrap construction foam and discarded plastic flowers. These materials were plucked from the waste-stream and repurposed, and will be recycled or donated to the Creative Reuse Exchange and similar places afterwards.
