The Debt Doll Project

Launched in 2013, The Debt Doll Project made it’s debut at Occupy Museum’s DebtFair Artist Meetup at Abrons Art Center, LES. The project is an attempt to discuss the serious issue of student debt that haunts most of us after college. At the same time, each doll sold helps me to make my monthly payments. I am currently working towards loan forgiveness. If all goes well, I will be student debt free by 2025. At that time, the Debt Doll Project will seize to exist. It is my hope that the issue of student debt will too.

Sinister Feminism. We fortify veneer into armor. We appropriate from misogynist sources. We exceed the cinematic ideal. We vibrate the sound of the city. We endure. Our physicalizations we know are transgressive. We are a halation of line. We throw shadow across the page. We teach the tongues of the past. We mock the habit of metonymy. We transmit the sense of hysterics. We smell. We hurl what we are required to withstand: our bodies, our selves. We are trying to reach you.
We wildly grin.
