Each Mask: 4x10x3, Mixed Media
This installation piece is designed using a series of masks that I made from scratch, using three simple ingredients: flour, water, and newspaper. I created this piece to symbolize how society has certain expectations for what a leader should be like. Our culture has very specific criteria as to what a person should accomplish before they can reach the top of the food chain. In the past, Justices of the Supreme Court were white and graduated from either Harvard or Yale. I created this installation as a means to break this standard because everyone is different and has something great to offer the world. We shouldn’t put impractical expectations on people because everyone is different and has something unique to offer.
