Mantra
Styrofoam, Sequins, Beads, Pins, Wood
12” x 93” x 7”
Mantra came out of having thought of the cultural impact of this phrase. The phrase itself is used as motivation, but also smacks of something more degrading and sexual. I thought it might be interesting to manifest this phrase into objecthood using a very labor-intensive process that fetishized the object but also gave it a glamorous hard veneer.
