 I have always been obsessed with the JFK assasination, so I wanted to commemorate it while using aspects of life in 2015, like overboard media coverage on every device possible. I created a stack of media related objects. I printed Kennedy's face as a pattern. I used a mirror like surface on the screens, which has significance to the overall event. Whenever I talk to people who were alive during this time, they always say it was a time of reflection. To look at yourself in the mirror and actually question what is going on, rather than soaking the information up like a sponge.
