make it through monday: no. 2

October 4th, 2010 · No Comments

Monday’s are the toughest day of the week. The weekend’s behind you,¬†and five grueling days of work lie ahead. So, each Monday, we’re showcasing something that we’ve made, with the hope that it inspires you . . .

My work is concerned with subcultures and fringe societies, honoring the creativity and ingenuity of these marginal groups. Currently I am working on a series of sculptures which refer to the tattoo instruments created by prison inmates around the world. The pieces remain partially true to the actual inmate designs, while also incorporating materials that are atypical but used for their potential symbolism.
