Sticks and Stones, 2016
This was a social art happening I co-produced with my wife that consisted of participants standing in the street as silent statues holding posters of negative comments collected from local news articles. The sentiments from these comments were largely directed at the youth of the community and were hateful in nature. For the first 30 minutes, participants stood in line and didn't speak to pedestrians. Viewers gathered and read the posters, one by one.
