Pink Duck

2014. Lenzner Gallery, Pitzer College.

This installation explored both climate change and animal extermination campaigns within the context of a colonized, post-industrial world. Montages of American propaganda films from the 1930’s were projected and accompanied by a sound installation of distressed farm animals and storm audio. Presented at the end of a red carpet, an old shovel and wheelbarrow filled with dirt symbolize a culture that fetishizes ownership, production, individualism, and resource control. In the corner a pink duck sits atop a square of astroturf, representing the unsettling consequences of these practices and beliefs.
