I have grown to question the political state of our country and the blind following of its leaders. I was inspired by the disturbing morning ritual of reciting the Pledge of Allegiance. Elements of my identity are present in this piece including political identity, gender, and class.
I elected to present my work in a small hidden corner of a stairwell to represent the internal opposition I’ve been forced to confront.
