One highlight from this yearlong piece, was a reading of a new Human Rights Declaration created by our high school aged Burmese participants, created in reaction to Myanmar’s recent historic shift into a democratic nation. The young writers declared the new rights they hope the democracy will bring including articles such as, “No wifi, no life!” and “Freedom of secular education!” Moments of positive resistance such as this, which elevate the voice of underrepresented groups while gathering a public to share in an artistic experience, are a leading thread in the participatory and social sculptures I work to cultivate.
