Zombie blue aardvarks and the New Year

  • Attack of the Zombie Blue Aardvarks and the Return of Totalitarianism
  • Project year: 2016
    Attack of the Zombie Blue Aardvarks and the Return of Totalitarianism and On the Occasion of Shanah Chadashah Sinit 33 (2016) are two related works revolving around certain current events between 2014 and 2016.

    In copyediting-l, people often disguise confidential information that should not be divulged with references to aardvarks. So I took the idea further and used aardvarks to suggest a subject that might be considered confidential, non-divulgeable, taboo.

    The three ceramic pieces comprising these two related works are currently on display outside OCAD University’s ceramics studio.

    Special thanks to RT for her suggestion for using wax resist on the illustrations.
