Homeless Children In Your City
With New York City’s homeless rates at a new high in 2017, this project was intended to draw attention to those who are affected most, children. A 4-foot tall candy machine was constructed and filled with 23,505 pieces of candy. Each candy represents one homeless child living in NYC Shelters each month. The machine was placed in three locations in Lower Manhattan, and informational cards were handed out near the installation. People passing by could donate a quarter and would receive about 20 pieces of candy. All donations were given to NYC Cares, a nonprofit that tutors low income and homeless children in all five boroughs.
August 20, 2017 Zine
This depicts day I consider to be a turning point in my life as I sat on top of a mountain watching the sunrise before moving to New York City. The zine acts as a flip book with transparent layers overlapping and building on one another to depict the change from darkness to dawn. A small paragraph is revealed word by word as one flips through the sheets.
