materials: shopping cart, garbage bags, shopping bags, box (cardboard), newspaper
Here we see a crib with a swaddled child just visible above the bars of the bed. The cardboard box is a reference to Moses in the straw basket. The baby is lifted by a garbage bag and a shopping bag. Lifted, or pushed upwards far enough to tip it over the edge? That is up to you. Using a shopping cart to portray the crib is a bold move that could lead to confusion. Some people might think it is a statement about the Berlin Wall and capitalism. We chose all objects for their rough, urban looks and the shopping cart had the extra advantage of wheels, suggesting the ability to rock the baby. For me this piece is about tenderness.
