"Florida's Electric Chair"
Cut paper, 4" x 6"

I made "Florida's Electric Chair" because I am surprised that such an archaic form of execution still exists in the 21st Century.  More shocking is the fact that the executioner is a private citizen who is paid $150 per execution.

The piece depicts the actual electric chair used by Florida State. I cut the wood-grain in the seat to echo profiles of people who have passed through the chair.
