POP is a project that deals with tensions that exist in the world today. Imminent tensions that develop into small explosions. Utilizing corn and popcorn as a metaphor for the random uprisings, protests and attacks around the world; for context as a sculptor for the same species. How we treat our crops, our children, our earth and what might be the outcome of our actions.
Popcorn puffs up when heated, pressure builds within the kernel, and a small explosion (or "pop") is the end result. Then popcorn is consumed in movie theaters, sporting events and even watching TV. The media seems to present news in a very particular manner that at times seems like a fiction as if it were entertainment.
