Gave this as a gift for Christmas yesterday and they were very well received. The quality of the postcards is great. My partner plans on framing them and was super impressed by the bios and individuals highlighted in this series. Thank you!

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.
