America: Together, Apart > Works

This body of work, America: Together, Apart, takes its name from Jacques Rancière's analogy utilizing the poet Mallarmé's The White Waterlily in his seminal text The Emancipated Spectator. It seeks to address how division is a construct used by the power structure to manipulate and control discourse and thus maintain its privileged position.
