Texting and Driving (2017).
This was a found-object sculpture that connects to something I’d like to change about the world. I see texting and/or distracted driving as a big issue, so I chose to focus on that. I used license plates to make a small “toy” car, and a broken Android phone to form the car’s windshield. Other collected materials became the passenger, victim, and car details. I was inspired by old Citröen cars, as well as by various cartoon forms (e.g., the dad’s feet from Calvin and Hobbes can be seen on the car-accident victim).
