"Orange Jumpsuit" and it's partner "Blue Scrubs, Yellow Scrubs, Trustees, All above" were commissioned by Los Angeles Municipal Gallery at barnsdall for the group show "Loitering is Delightful". Inspired by an essay by Ross Gay about the perils and pleasures of loitering, these videos use a longstanding device within my practice of the Ikebana to contemplate the vulnerability of black bodies in public space that are not deployed for labor profit or entertainment. The colors of the flowers are the colors of clothing worn in LA County Jail (yellow and blue) and state prison (orange -- in fact there are 5 colors, green grey and yellow and red as well). This is the Left video in a pendant pair for flat screen presentation." – Cauleen Smith
