Interesting Times is a series of 12 printed vinyl banners, suspended from the trees that present images of cultural sites and protests in countries around the world. In 2013, I was struck by the worldwide protests during the Arab Spring in the Middle East and against austerity measures in Europe and the US.

The banners are strung together and suspended like prayer flags or laundry. The cultural context is usually missing from reports in the media. My intension is to show their rich cultural heritage that is important to all of us and the breadth of the global crisis.
