Point of Entry
Susan V. Polansky, 2019

“Point of Entry” is a really successful piece, despite it’s lack of acceptances into shows. It is a welcome mat made like a bed of nails and it perfectly expresses my feelings about immigration current events. It was a time-sucking endeavor, and not a pleasant process – spray paint and flooring nails are definitely not my artistic medium. It’s heavy to ship to shows, and it doesn’t exactly sparkle in photos (it is, after all, just a floor mat). But I love that I made exactly what I envisioned.
