Title: “Clue”

About:

“I have always been fascinated by the board game, Clue. Intrigued by the taboo of a game about murder and weapons, but drawn in by the relationships of the extravagant characters. This personal series is a current day exploration of Clue, presenting old and new murder weapons, and examining some of the unspoken and taboo causes of death in today’s society.”
