In my second year at Yale, I collaborated with first year student Aurora Robles to make signage for the first year show. We wanted to make something physical and large scale that would look like a party gone wrong. The first year class will graduate in 2012 so we wanted to reference the impending doom that is associated with that year. We decided to make giant black piñata-esque numbers that were exploding with colorful streamers. We made them by hand which proved to be an incredibly labor-intensive process.
