Interventions in Tjaden Hall 2011
site-specific acrylic paintings and screen prints

Appropriating text and imagery from existing cartoons, I installed a series of cartoon interventions around Tjaden Hall. Each recontextualized cartoon interacts with existing objects and texts in Tjaden, collapsing the distinction between what is inside the artwork and outside of it. The work relies on the comic’s history of critique through humor. In many of the site-specific installations, the comics subvert or comment ironically on a given space and the objects in that space.
