Buily by Popular Demand is an exhibition exploring the palm tree as a symbol of placemaking and utopia. Informed by my research on beach tourism and experience as a project manager in a signage shop, I assert the unstable relationship between the visual and the productive. Working collaboratively with sculpture, print, and craft studies, I make connections between the built-environment and sites of cultural production, revealing undertones of the political in the process.
