“Never in my wildest dreams (or nightmares) did I think our country would have chosen such a divisive and controversial president. Over the past few years, I have witnessed and participated in many social media discussions (and rants) on the subject. Ultimately, I found this realm of discourse a frustrating waste of time. A more positive and constructive activity for me was to create work about the many issues I am passionate about. We are living in a Technicolor Twilight Zone, and Unusual Politics is my response.” William Greiner 2020
