Media: Mixed Media
This piece is inspired by the Vancouver Biennale Exhibition in 2009-2011: The Meeting (Wang Shugang, China). With Power, my goal was to juxtapose elements of both order and chaos using mixed media to provoke questions and ideas about what power is, what it means, and what its effects are. Several of the photographs I incorporated in my piece were taken during riots that broke out during the 2010 G20 Summit in Toronto.
