Bill of Rights
My fascination with the Bill of Rights has led me to investigate how this historical document is subject to change through the retelling, reinterpreting and collective consciousness. This is an ongoing investigation of each Amendment and its relationship to the current political climate. I have come to realize the beauty and failure of this document and how the often ambiguous and outdated language can be used against those that it was meant to protect.
This is a deconstruction of the First Amendment to visually explore the potential breakdown in meaning when language is reduced to its most basic elements. The process of discovery incorporated in the piece is intended to help the viewer reconstruct the meaning for themselves word by word.
