MegaPennant

MegaPennant, 2012, vinyl, twill tape, aluminum, wood, 96 x 72 x 1 inches / 2.4 m x 1.8 m x 1 cm.

Five cheery colors of transparent vinyl are displayed in a single layer with white twill tape. It casts a vibrantly-tinted shadow.


Vinyl pennant sculptures contrast simple understandings of happiness with a more complex iteration.

We all know pleasure, but lasting happiness is elusive and complex. I hope to signify the complicated, multifaceted emotions, conditions, and actions involved in creating happiness.
