by Zenia Sherman for Build A Dream (2014)

I used the aluminum wire and the wire mesh to build an armature. I then used the foam ear as the base for the head. I applied the plaster over the armature, and the packing peanuts over the plaster. The plastalina clay I overlaid on the head and hands, and for the dreamer. The gateway and the paved road were constructed from the cardboard of the box, and the galaxy and planets were painted on the canvas. I used needle nosed pliers for the wire, and acrylic paint for all the coloring.

My first thought on seeing the theme of "Build A Dream" was that not all dreams are good...
