Safety vest, campaign buttons, blanket
Dimensions: Variable – 40 x 50 inches

A safety vest protects the human chest and warns of danger. This vest is stuffed with “campaign” buttons asking questions of psycho-physical dimension. We pass people in need on the streets every day. What do we know of one another? How can we connect beyond our fear, towards empathy and reciprocity?

“How do I obscure what is before me?”

“Where is the threshold between me and you?”

“How can you see me as I really am?”

“When am I in present time?”

“How do I experience pleasure?”
