The piece entitled "Submitted For the Approval" pays homage to Nickelodeons classic television show Are You Afraid of the Dark. Each episode would begin with the members of the fictional crew (The Midnight Society) as they would gather around the campfire to exchange scary stories. Oftentimes those stories were accompanied by an object that lead into the tale and they would begin with the phrase, "Submitted for the Approval of the Midnight Society I call this story..." and would share the horrific tales with their friends. By only showing the knife this piece is allows viewers to create and share their own story. 

The exhibition begins Sat, Oct 1, 2016 at 6:00pm and runs through Sun, Nov 6, 2016 5:00pm at the San Diego Art Institute located at 1439 El Prado, San Diego, CA,  92101.
