“Land Of The Free”

In this piece I decided to use the very well known phrase “Land Of The Free” I then projected this message onto the justice building in Provo where protests for social justice take place. I knew mass incarceration was a problem in the United States but it wasn’t until 2017 that the problem had affected my family when my uncle and my dad were incarcerated on two separate occasions. I mourn with the people in prison who haven’t gotten the justice they deserve. The US makes up 5% of the world’s population but yet we have the highest incarceration rate in the world. Systematic racism is being shown right in front of our eyes, and yet people still choose to ignore it. It’s no question that I find this phrase ironic regarding how many people are incarcerated in the US. -- Eveline zarate
