What happens when a boy doesn't learn to process his anger, fear, and sadness? What if he has the nuclear codes? Scared Little Boy is a laser-cut LED artwork examining childhood innocence, mutual destruction, and the possibility of regeneration.
What inspired you to make this project?:
This project explores important themes in my life: masculinity, fear, destruction, regeneration. I was interested in adding a new fabrication method to my toolkit, so I decided to incorporate laser-cut and laser-etched acrylic. Interlocking structures pack flat but expand to many times their size when assembled.
