Designed for LAB 2
Using names of murder victims, victims of extreme violence, which were extracted from newspapers, radio and TV news from January to July 2015, cover the black wall with white chalk.
This is a list, which I hope will act like a physical representation of 'the writing on the wall."
In class we are made to sit in front of a blackboard and see and record notes.
The time for seeing and writing notes has passed. Crime has gripped us in a chokehold.
Class is in session or are we still at recess?
LAB 2 was reopened and I decided to do so with this.
I was reading the papers all weekend, (of my mom's collection from January 25, 2015 to July 12, 2015), and it was violent, and most of it was on the front page.
Sadder than that, the one who tirelessly shared these stories, efficiently, crying out for change ended up on the list. What a list, worse than that, what a reality!
Lita Krohn brought a hanging piece. Gilvano helped to install it.
The space is open!
