I Want to be Welcome Everywhere, Always

2008, ongoing, Ceremonial keys to various cities, display cases. Dimensions variable.

The artist's personal collection of ceremonial keys to various cities. Traditionally awarded by a mayor to noteworthy visitors, these keys suggest unlimited access and hospitality within a city's limits.

In an ongoing mission, the artist will attempt to amass an exhaustive collection which will include a key to every city in the world. A comically misdirected expression of a very human desire to belong.
