About

The Political Circus is a pop art project aimed at public engagement in politics. The project began in 2007, after I moved to Ottawa, as a collection Canadian politician finger puppets. It has since grown into an interactive project, with site specific installations and academic collaborations.

The Political Circus was conceived from a desire to make politics relevant to audiences beyond political parties and organized social movements. Art is an accessible entry into politics; “puppet politicians” are especially straightforward concepts. Canadian politics is traditionally communicated through static media: TV, radio and print. My work, on the other hand, is tactile, interactive and fun.

My primary medium is silkscreen on mixed textiles.
