WE WILL GROW STRONGER AT THE TORN PLACES (RESIST)
(2018) 47″ x 24″
WE WILL GROW STRONGER AT THE TORN PLACES (RESIST) is more than just an image of a torn, tattered, strangely remade flag, and more than just a twisted Hemingway quote—it also contains a hidden message of solidarity with those fighting the fight. The message (the single word RESIST) is an autostereogram, a shadow image seen by refocusing your eyes in front of the actual image. A “secret” message like this one can be problematic, though. It speaks to those who share my views, but excludes those who simply can’t see it. Will they believe there even is a message? Will they think it’s just a “dog whistle”? Will they fear it’s being whispered behind their backs? Will they ever understand me? Will they even try?
