This series of intaglio prints explores devices used to control social movement and action. Audience members bring to this collection their own understandings of who these devices are implemented to protect and how individuals respond to notions of security and surveillance.
The original concept for the series came from research analyzing similarities between security measures in under-resourced public schools and minimum security detention facilities. Woven into this series is an exploration of how security measures and controlled spaces provide a feeling of safety to some and threat to others, largely based on societal assumptions of criminality.
All prints are a combination of line etching and aquatint printed 6" x 6" on rag paper.
