Boys Can't Drive (2015-2016)

In Boys Can’t Drive, I evoke the male universe by pressing toy cars into  blue Play-Doh and creating digital images on a scanner. Some of the imaginary created are reenactments of real car crashes taken from YouTube and Google images.

The pseudo hieroglyphs that are formed show not just my attempt to navigate in that space but my frustration towards it as well.


"For BCD, blue served as a means to explore a more private realm, that of the domestic sphere and motherhood, where her son’s fascination with cars - his first spoken word being “car” in Spanish  - played out across a gender divide that left Vieira locked out, so-to-speak, and unexpectedly frustrated."
