Good boys go to heaven, bad boys go everywhere | 2005 (IN PROGRESS)

This work evokes how hard it is for us to respect difference, even when we are experiencing the direst of moments. The magazine collection at the source of this work belonged to a friend who—in certainty of his impending, premature death—was apprehensive enough about it to ask me to remove it from his home so that his parents would not find it. He then suggested I keep it in the event that I might someday use it in my work.
