Step Right Up! Voting Booth

Year: 2020
Artists: Erika Nelson
A marriage of carnival culture and fine art, Step Right Up! Voting Booth is an interactive interpretation of a voting booth, sideshow-style, outfitted with shelves of customized, hand-painted carnival figures (punks), with participants asked to exercise their right to ‘vote’. Ballots are cast through the act of throwing provided projectiles into the gaping maw of their choice of candidates, feeding the system of consumer-centric voting access.
