Artist for Sale Installation

"Artist for Sale" is my first big installation, here you see it displayed in its full glory, spanning the width of the documentation room at school. The work is hung from wall to wall on a piece of hemp rope. It is made up of 45 individual ink drawing 1x1 inch squares glued onto a price tag which is then hung by wire that is twisted onto the hemp rope. If the squares were pieced back together what the viewer would see is a portrait of me. Disassembled, the portrait becomes 45 delicate, calligraphy like abstract images, some resembling facial features, others elegant marks on paper. It was a really fun piece to make and I hope I can find a gallery willing to exhibit it.
