Call Your Mom

“Call Your Mom” is a public installation I did on the Stony Brook Campus for Unbound, which is part of the Shirley Strum Kenny Art Festival.

I constructed 45 small ramekin cakes out of felt and hung these from the lower branches from a single tree on campus, located outside the south side of the library. The bottom of each cake is embroidered with a piece of face-value advice on small things one can do to lead a more fulfilling life and improve their interactions with others. To wit : “Call your mom”, “Avoid trans fats”, “Say ‘please’ and ‘thank you’”, “Don’t yell.” By using common crafters materials, I hope that my project has an accessible, handmade simplicity to it.
