As international movements take hold and flourish, protests are often reinterpreted by cable news, internet snippets and enigmatic memes. This collaboration explores the desire for direct experience.

 

Artifacts of the Yellow Vest movement (sound and adornment) are drawn upon to create an empathetic relationship with the movement and its participants. Both artists work from the outside in. One, cocoons in the movement’s symbolic yellow tunic.The other, swims in the sounds of the protests.
