American Mad Libs
As with most of her work, Rosamond S. King’s ongoing American Mad Libs series is deeply informed by culture, history, and a sense of humor. These works use various media to question the enduring legacy of seminal American texts (such as the Constitution and the Declaration of Independence). The pieces combine the playfulness of a children’s game with the weight of history and politics. They question what the founding USAmerican texts mean today, and how much we really know and understand them. King uses every day materials to emphasize how these documents affect our everyday lives.
