The Paper Moon Art Exhibition "focuses on work that, in one way or another, serves as a substitute for the real thing. The show examines how these substitutes are intended to function, the nature of their appeal, and what role authenticity and our ability to 'make believe' play in the proffered illusion." Flat Daddy was screened five days a week as part of the exhibition.
