A Bigger Boat by Alanna Risse, curated by Rainmaker resident, Jason Berlin.
Risse's Jaws-inspired installation A Bigger Boat is a light-hearted photo booth installation that uses the trope of "death by giant shark" to make light of our troubling political times. Visitors interact with a scene recreated from the movie Jaws, then visit http://abiggerboat.tumblr.com/ to retrieve and share their gifs.
