Sweet and Salty

Sweet and Salty (2021)

“Sweet and Salty” (2021) is part of a series of ‘flag-like’ works that play with the structures and conventions of flags. Flags are focal points for powerful emotions and feelings of belonging, of us versus them. The works in this series are neither paintings nor sculptures but exist somewhere between.

“Sweet and Salty” is a sibling piece to “Popcorn Time” which is itself a reference to online (tech) forums and the heated but highly entertaining discussions that often define them. A common response to a controversial comment is to respond Opens Popcorn Waits inviting other participants to begin to argue so they can sit back and enjoy watching the sparks fly.
