What I made for the post election project was a stencil of two hands handing off a key like runners in a relay would hand off a baton. I made it out of spray paint and stencils. I chose to do this subject because I think it is important to hand off the keys to the white house peacefully because just like a relay you can not do well in the race if you go alone. It is way faster to have multiple people all take a leg like the presidents have terms.
This piece shows formal balance because the hands come from both sides and meet on the gold key in the middle which is the focal point. Something that could be stronger is the background. There is a lot of white space which I like because the the painting is suppose to look almost like a statue and I think it a background would distract from the 3d effect but others might disagree.
