Striving for A+
Wire, paper (past school assignments) and fire ash construction
A+ is a wire statue that was inspired by this year’s school moto of “Hard work beats talent, when talent doesn’t work hard”. The artwork is a symbolic representation of ‘burning out’ from the stresses of life and stresses of school life faced by a student. The artwork A+ represents this symbolism in a nearly literal sense in an attempt to shock and create conversation within my audience. With this artwork, I hope conversations regarding mental health are opened.
