People and Places Become One Another

(excerpt from Martin Luther King's Chicago Freedom Movement Rally Speech on July 10, 1966 at Soldier Field, Chicago)

The viewer sees themselves in the brown mirror, which reveals text from a Martin Luther King, Jr. speech in Chicago, "Our power is in our unity, the force of our souls, and the determination of our bodies…" This piece was presented with the installation, "I Look For These Past Hands," and exhibited on Chicago's West Side, therefore, drawing attention to the housing struggles of Chicago during the 60’s and the city's current displacement issues.
