Lying Matryoshkas

2018
russian dolls, and paint
2” x 2” x 3”


It is important for objekt trauma to be created at what I call rapid fire design. Rapid fire design is a design method which responds to everyday contemporary issues at an instant pace. It doesn’t allow for news to go obsolete. By taking advantage of this design method the objects that are created become a backup for dissecting global issues. In other words, fueling the conversation and keeping the fire burning.

For example, these Russian matryoshkas are a metaphor for the lies and cover ups from the Trump Circle. Each doll becomes a platform for unmasking how the American Democracy was hijacked during the 2016 presidential elections and every doll you open gets you a step closer to the truth.
