The Cost of Freedom (found object assemblage)
I found an old whiskey decanter that I filled with pieces of toy soldiers and flags, along with some bullet fragments. I had the Uncle Sam bank - I added some more soldiers to Uncle Sam's hand and to the purse...and voila! An installation is born.
I am thankful (but saddened) for their sacrifice, and I wonder if those who make the decisions to go to war or into a conflict actually realize the REAL costs of their decisions?
