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 Bridge, Campaign Zero, Black Lives Matter, Equal Justice Initiative, Southern Poverty Law Center, National Museum of African American History and Culture, Civil Rights Museum, Black Women in Visual Art, The Sentencing Project, and Black Women in Politics.
