Soft Power: the first steps.

Soft Power is my CalArts MFA thesis project, in which I am building 50+ life sized stuffed animal weapons for people to cuddle up in in a pile. They are very cozy. Pictured are 8 M982 Excalibur shells and 5 High Explosive Squash Heads (only 37 weapons to go). The show will also include embroideries, a quilt depicting fighter plane formations, and hopefully a “quiet book” library and will be viewable in the CalArts Mint gallery from April 12th to April 19th (with a big opening on April 17th at 7:00pm).
