Trump _Word_Domination Installation

Trump_World_Domination is an animated Gif. It was created as a reaction to the overt racial tension publicized during Trumps campaign rally's. The animation depicts a burning upside down American flag - which is symbolic of the nations duress, prolonged by white supremacist propagated trauma. The demonic laughing president elect Trump image speaks on the deluded and schizophrenic ideals of the countries state. The animation concludes with a peak of its past. A brazen grinning Al Jolson in blackface flashes over Trumps face while the flames grow on the flag behind them.

Photo Proof

Well, I Voted is a piece I wore election day to the polls in Santa Clarita, Los Angeles. Not being a native Californian I enrolled and registered to vote whistle I was in my first semester. Wearing this shirt into the polls was not intended as a performance however I gather those who engaged with me in those moments were witness to my grievance of choices in future policy makers.
