August 26th 2011 – 2900 W Belden Ave

Similarly to “June 8th 2011 – 3500 W School St “, “August 26th 2011 – 2900 W Belden Ave” was created in response to a specific violent act that occurred ┬áin the neighborhood where I live. The object is not meant to memorialize the event, instead it attempts to address the void and negativity left by the violence by harnessing a variety of strategies used historically to heal, energize and activate.
