Instead of using language and forms of the art world, Novelty Items borrows from consumer culture. Sometimes this work proposes a solution to an imaginary problem with failing marketing: no one will want to buy it. Sometimes it abstracts the needs of a particular market: no one will find use for the product.
The work provides very mild entertainment. Maybe even a chuckle. And to those with art-literacy, it can become a serious art world critique.

Congratulations on your purchase of The Most Controversial Object in America. This sculpture of a progesterone receptor is “locked” by the drug, Mifepristone. The progesterone receptor cannot interact with progesterone now, and does not produce the proteins needed to maintain a hospitable uterine lining. The uterine lining breaks down, and menstruation begins. This will abort an embryo if it is no more than 10 weeks old. This sculpture is a medically induced abortion. Enjoy!
