The Other Toy Story
Public participatory project, 2010-2016. Wire mesh sculptures filled with used and broken toys. Includes the 10 foot tall Receptacle and the 3 members of the Litter: Thing One, Thing Two, and Firstborn.
A striking visual of what our children are consuming, this project touches on environmental concerns while also creating an archeological portrait of an American childhood. Used and broken toys that cannot be easily recycled are 'fed' to the Receptacle through a trap door in its head.
