AIDS IS... -- 2012
Artist Edition Tote Bag by Daryl Vocat
What is AIDS?
Visual AIDS is proud to unveil our Artist Edition / Broadside tote bag (Summer 2012) from acclaimed artist Daryl Vocat:
"Much of my work involves re-drawing and collaging together images from Scout handbooks in order to tell different, or parallel stories to the original narratives. I am interesting in both subverting and paying homage to the ideas and ideals in Scouting. The images that I create often depict moments where it is unclear what has come before, or what will come after. In this particular image a character has begun to write out a phrase starting with the words, "AIDS is__." We don't know specifically how the sentence will end, but instead are left to contemplate what AIDS could be." -- Daryl Vocat
