I teamed up with Cofax to create the installation "A Summoning of Dodger Spirits" at their Fairfax Blvd location. I've always been fascinated by the underlying belief systems that are present in both religion and sports. Often these belief systems manifest themselves in specific artistic techniques, such as the felt applique banners of the Catholic Church or the sequined tapestries of Drapos Voudou. I decided to try to use some of these techniques to make art that would affirm the beliefs of Dodger fans and hopefully propel the team to a World Series Championship.
