This piece originated four years ago, in a Target store in Atlanta. I was in town for my friend's graduation. As we shopped in the store, we walked through the toy aisle. I saw the wands and wondered if anyone else saw what I saw. I saw a phallus. It made me think wonder, what kind of toys are we giving our children to play with? I wanted to be very blunt and I thought about attaching these wands to male silhouettes.
