  • These two projects were made during the time when Brazil's government oppression through military dictatorship, where words had to be spoken carefully.
  • The two projects that the artist did were, I feel, bringing awareness to the public by circulation of everyday items.
  • I thought that it was a smart way to carry out a message that you don't particularly want higher authority to find out.

  • I felt that this artwork was successful because the two items selected for this work was guaranteed to be circulated around the public/ city.
