To Parade was an unsanctioned "parade" of 14 sculptures I had made. They were pushed for two blocks down the street of my old nieghborhood of Echo Park, June 13th, 2004. The parade was attended by whom ever happened to be around to witness the event. The sculptures all referenced some type of American parade or the idea of parading oneself. For example the inflatable dinosaur serves as large balloon figures of the Macy's Thanksgiving Day parade, the large chair piece was recycled from the 2004 Rose Parade, the styrofoam ball with my name misspelled relates to Arte Povera's Michelangelo Pistoletto's newspaper ball pushed down the street in Turin. The clear plexiglas box references the "Pope Mobile". This parade was to be about the waste of these kinds of acts, parades started as ways of showing one's identity and beliefs like the old parades of Ireland in which colored scarves were worn to show ones religious faith. This parade woud be a critique of the desire for the spectical of the parade acuminating in what would be the shortest, piece meal version of a parade.
