Riot

 

 

Riot, 6″, Clay, Installation at University of Maryland Baltimore County, 2014.

 

The late 60s saw lots of riots about Vietnam and racial riots on college campuses. It is rumored that UMBC, in an attempt to protect itself, created these riot stairs to slow down any riots that may happen on the campus.  The stairs still remain on the campus and makes for awkward and at times comedic ascendence. This piece is a light hearted play on this.
