Death by Birthday: A festive way to show the grim side

Desire’ Hough’s solo installation, Rotting Piñata, is a birthday party that was eagerly planned but never occurred for unspoken reasons, leaving the viewer with underlying notions of death. The piñata was never hit yet is falling apart, cake never cut but not at all appetizing, balloons at your feet deflating, and gifts left unopened. All combine to create a subtly haunting scene.
