Swamp Trump

I made this likeness of Dear Leader and then anchored him in the Gowanus Canal, a Superfund site that–in addition to being the grossest thing in NYC–is the most toxic urban waterway in the United States and one of the most polluted waterways in the world. It seemed like the most fitting place for our nation's most toxic leader who promised to drain the swamp but instead made it more disgusting than anyone thought possible. Swamp Trump eventually met his end when he was run over by a barge that was part of the ongoing and possibly eternal cleanup operation. 

 

The Trumpee Stump

I don't know if the pee tapes are real or not, but I do know that their existence would explain a lot of otherwise inexplicable things. And so if Dear Leader likes pee that much, let us bestow it upon him. I attached these mini-busts to artificial turf and then sprinkled them with synthetic dog urine to encourage participation. The first wave was deployed in NYC but more have been purchased and installed in Miami, Chicago, Portland, Texas, Michigan, Indiana, Kentucky, Germany, and Australia.

NYC Rapture Readiness Committee

In 2011, Harold Camping ran a lot of ads in NYC warning that the rapture was coming – specifically on May 21, which was soon revised to October 21. Naturally, his real goal was raising money. I felt called by a sense of duty to New York City and humanity in general to have some fun with the whole thing, and created the NYC Rapture Readiness Committee .
