“Let's Make a Deal, Again”

“Let's Make a Deal, Again” was a site-specific installation that examined stereotypes of success and failure in our society. The space was defined by squares of dirt on the floor and wooden stanchions with ropes between them. Written messages were slightly visible under the dirt. Audience members had to bend down and scratch at the dirt to read the whole message. The stanchions kept the audience walking on the dirt and led viewers to a central pedestal. There they would find the unplayable micro game (complete with playing cards, "anti-prizes," and dice) sitting like an archaeological artifact on an altar. Exhibition: the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design gallery (1978).
