Dangerous Objects

Dangerous Objects investigates cases of excessive use of force and death by the police force when they are confronted with unarmed black people, spanning from 2012 through the present day. Each piece incorporates the victim's name into the branding of the product that police deemed worthy of enacting brutality. This project was created for the Fifth Year Emerging Artist program at St. Olaf College.
