Thesis Class: Week 1
: awareness, (elicit) empathy (for the number of widows in Iraq), advocacy. Variations: on chalkboard, interactive book, commemorative book, video performance with chalkboard. Ethereal white lines that build up, layer and get wiped out. : silkscreen double-sided banners, drew lines in sand. Community action days to have people help draw 3 million lines over a period of a year. Meditative, emotional, remember to count. Local, national, international effort. This piece is no longer about me. Starting with my idea, but has been advocacy art. How to frame it in such a way we can see the effect of it.
