Ribbon, paint marker - 2’x8’x2’
In the wake of the 2020 racial Uprising, I revisited my “Privileged White Thoughts (2009)” sculpture. This sculpture used journal notes from my time in college studying systemic racism to embodying my ‘White Thoughts.’ As part of revisiting this piece in 2020, I read new books about racism, whiteness, and antiracism activists. I challenged myself to once again write down my earnest reflections, experiences, and role in the system of white supremacy. My aim was to learn from my gut reactions and emotions and avoid defensiveness and denial. I documented the process on these streams of white ribbon.
