DESCRIPTION

Combining half of a child size doll, drawing replacing the doll's front, and video eyes sourced from the Benghazi hearing, Hillary Clinton As A Child speaks to the construction of a larger than life identity over time. The mention of just the name Hillary Clinton brings an immediate response. From where do we form an opinion of our politicians? Based on a childhood photo of Hillary, HCAAC stands as a reminder of Hillary’s history, that she was not always the Hillary Clinton we think we know today.
 
"For on television the politician does not so much offer the audience an image of [herself], as offer [herself] as an image of the audience."
-Neil Pastor, Amusing Ourselves To Death, 1985
