Peeple

Board Book; 7" x 6" x 3.75", 2002

Made in collaboration with Dieter Janssen Peeple are playthings for peetime. They are heat sensitive decals with two layers installed on the interiors of upright urinals. When heated by urine, the top layer disappears thereby revealing the characters in their underclothes. The narrative inherent in this unveiling explores the disjunction between a person's external presentation of him or herself and their private lives. This work is presented as a book in which three narratives unfold using various characters. This small thick board book's materiality alludes to child like play and humor while difficult subject matter is explored.
