Resume of My Failures, 2016. Paper towels, ink, clothespins, and yarn.

"The resume, I think, is a kind of self-portrait you are obligated to show to other people. So I decided to make a portrait of my failures, hanging out my dirty laundry, so to speak. To offer and then partially destroy it, using water and ink, was a process of self-reflection. Subsequently, I created a Resume of My Dreams to map an ideal plan of my life until my peaceful death in 2100. Recognizing the impossibility of fulfilling a perfect life, it's also written on a paper towel, just one painted gold. Which is not to say that the future isn't worth dreaming about, but rather that you can paint it whatever color you want."
