Suburban Interventions, A Question of Property, and Assigned Value (title) originated in West Texas in 2000, and since then these projects have been installed or taken place in diverse locations throughout the United States: from Los Angeles, California to Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, and from El Paso, Texas to Cambridge, Massachusetts. These three art projects incorporate and juxtapose the disciplines of sculpture and architecture with the Western legal discourses of property, First Amendment, and intellectual property law. In particular, these projects invoke, and thus critique, the assumed universality and normativity of Western jurisprudence.
