Historic circus and carnival art is a great passion of mine. These pieces, though most utilitarian, were designed to be as unlike anything else seen in the everyday world as is possible. They greatly transcended normal life and demanded much more than just the audience's attention.

With this piece, I explored using this same fantastic visual language - but for a message much less likely to transcend any but the lowest of what a really crappy day has to offer. And I found the suggestion of this piece's age added some weight and irony to it's message.
