Image Statement: This work emphasizes the contrasts of inequity. The gauzy transparency of the body area underscores the flimsiness of the ruse supporting inequitable practices. The red/green opposing color palette accentuates the disparity of lives caught in the web of inequity versus those unaffected or unconcerned. The metal spikes that curve back to the structure affirm that inequity is a recurring practice of harm.
