Americans parade


Against the backdrop of the 2016 presidential election and the constant media conversation on demographics, I decided to explore this question through that most American of activities, the parade, more specifically, the community that views the parade

Through details, gestures and interactions, the work explores the individual, family, community and the social and political fractures that have left Americans walled off from one another along lines of race, class and geography, an American that stands divided  and is being replicated in Europe.
