Exhibition: THE SOCRATES ANNUAL
Tile on concrete
3 x 6 x 6 feetEvoking an excavation or burial of a United States presidential seal, this piece is at once an exploration of contemporary civics, artificial artifacts, and political symbols. Rendered in intricately cut tile in the opus sectile mosaic tradition, partially concealed and riven apart, POTUS interrogates American aesthetics of power and speculates about what politics leaves behind.
