Soda Crate, Transparent Furniture Plastic, HVAC Sheet Metal: Angle Iron 40" with 1/4" Holes, Peanut shells blessed by mother's labor
54" × 22" × 16"

My mother vended roasted peanuts and confectionery beverages to finance our household. These peanuts were shelled by hand over a course of three months. A bag of peanuts cost a dollar but a batch would take over five days to produce. Light, Medium, Dark are not only preferences that customers would request their peanuts in but also alludes to the struggles she faced as a black woman and Haitian immigrant.
