I’ve been out of town for the week visiting the sights, sounds and sometimes the smells of New York City. After the Met, MOMA, New Museum, Pulse Art Fair and several others I also managed to create and order fabric to create six ties. The pattern for each of the ties is based off and and designed around the logos of the top 6 bailed out banks. I am thinking of displaying these in white shadow boxes with a tie in the center and American flag pin to the right side, signifying a lapel. The often hidden relationships formed between political figures and major corporations served as inspiration for this work.
