9 to 5 feces on fart and crass : subverting society's segregative structures
Metadata[+] Show full item record
[ACCESS RESTRICTED TO THE UNIVERSITY OF MISSOURI AT AUTHOR'S REQUEST.] In resistance to oligarchical structures, which deny access and influence nearly every aspect of our society, I've created an inventory of work, which utilizes and embraces archetypes and pop culture motifs as a means to critique authoritative figures and institutions, and examine marginalizing structures. The works exist on paper, in zines, on posters, buttons, pins and other ephemera as a way of making the images affordable (and available) to the working and middle class. While these works are meaningful on their own, they have become secondary to the method in which they are displayed and sold. These images -- ranging from satirical repudiations of political and celebrity icons, to ambivalent reactions fueled by sports-based fandom -- reflect a desire for connectedness and well-being, concepts which are all summarized in the form of a transient, white cube.
