BASIC HUMAN NEEDS

In an effort to voice what to some might be viewed as overly idealistic. One must press ahead and put actions, thoughts and intentions into public space that support what we all understand as goals that can not be forgotten, let alone actually brought into reality for the survival and betterment of all humanity. Acrylic paint on paper, dimensions 13’ by 7’.

HUMANITY

Spontaneous public installation, Seattle 2016. Three dimensional cardboard letters, painted with acrylic paint. Humanity is shown left out in the rain to be reclaimed by nature or possibly a timely passerby.

YENOM WEN

For this CoCA exhibition, the New Mystics explored what we discard, where we find value, and where we find “coolness.” This show navigated the space between being complicit in the current homeless struggle and reflecting on one’s disconnection between detritus and desire. MORE INFO

Public Action

Speaking to the needs of our city and region. Expressing thoughts that have to be seen, heard and acted upon. A sense of permission emerges as one contributes clear messages into the public realm. We must do better to support the most vulnerable among us, we must recognize factually the displacement taking place in this area. We can not stand idly by as this effects all of us. Cardboard letters created with the help of Angel179 and NKO, approximate size 20′ by 20′. Posters made with adhesive vinyl or hand painted with acrylic paint, varying in size from 3′ by 4′ to 7′ by 16′ roughly.

Residency: CoCA’s Un[contained].

“I can’t help but notice the increase in the past ten years of people living on the street in Seattle, especially in the last three years.

Using salvaged wood in tandem with other recycled/donated resources, I have created a portable living space for someone who is homeless. It’s my intention to build more of these structures when ever able. By painting the exterior of the structure I aim to make this home command the attention of those who would rather choose to ignore the state of homelessness and displacement in our area. The home acting as a billboard, stating in the most matter of fact way the basic necessity of having a roof over ones head. Voicing through words the needed legislative action of RENT CONTROL to help create sensible affordable homes for those in need.
Can this temporary home be a sense of pride for the inhabitant? Could this action open the eyes of developers?”
