A giant dispossessed Mickey Mouse, made from the backs of discarded television sets, pulsates with broadcast media from a bygone era. The massive icon (5 meters from ear to toe) lays in the vulnerable position of a homeless man passed out on a sidewalk after a binge. Projectors and mirrors bounce radiant video through every pore of the piece, charging the surrounding space with shifting light and sound.

Excerpt from installation created for the City of Los Angeles Fellowships Exhibition (2011), reinstalled at the Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art (2014). The work was praised in this LA Times Review of the City of Los Angeles Fellowships Exhibition:
