The Confidence Booster

Consisting of wallpaper featuring flattering statements and a series of twelve mirrors containing lyrics from recent hip-hop music appropriated to directly compliment the viewers, the installation nods to our image-conscious culture. Thi wry presentation of soothing but ultimately superficial phrases gently satirizes its own source material, while subtly acknowledging its irresistible appeal.
