a creative collective for inspiration

My interest in sculpture really started with work that I made in an undergraduate “Art Process” class that you taught. I can’t remember the details of the assignment, but I started taking bar soap from people’s homes for a month and eventually displayed all of them together on a shelf….I was thinking about how objects could function as a kind of portrait of someone—about the soap being an index of a person that was different than a photographic portrait or index. It seemed more intimate and more performative. I liked the idea of people going to shower the next day to find their soap missing. And I hoped that the people who saw the stolen bars of soap might look at their own soap differently the next time they showered or washed their hands. I enjoyed touching things that other people had handled. The transformation of materials happened by other people’s hands instead of mine. This interest in getting closer to people or establishing a kind of intimacy with strangers is something that, even ten years later, is a recurring subject for me.

Porn is one of the biggest and most harmful industries in the world, closely affiliated with human trafficking and drugs and alcohol abuse, causing rape between children, violence, beastiality and pedophilism and its fetishizing race, underage girls, trans people and lesbianism. Thought you should know.
