The Obstruction Project: February 2019


In stock


February 2019 One of my colleagues challenged me to create something that did not use an abstract word, that asked a question, somehow connected to my birth year (1969) and included some form of defacement. While the words are from 1969, they feel relevant today, even if they are coming from Richard Nixon.

Hand set metal type, defacement. 6″x14″ (I think…)

What you cannot see is the blind embossment: “Why aren’t you f**king listening?” But without the asterisks.

The profits from the sale of this and all The Obstruction Project I will donate to the following organizations: Multicultural BridgeCampaign ZeroBlack Lives MatterEqual Justice InitiativeSouthern Poverty Law CenterNational Museum of African American History and CultureCivil Rights MuseumBlack Women in Visual ArtThe Sentencing Project, and Black Women in Politics.
