How Many Colors Around You?, 2013,Acrylic mirror, 1/2" birch ply, thread, nuts, 48.5x60x5" 


Explores discrimination, which is based on skin color. New York City is diverse and populated by people of all color. However, based on my own experience in New York City, skin color, often results in discrimination despite this diversity. I decided to express my thoughts about discrimination based on skin color by using colored acrylic mirrors to highlight racial stereotypes. The six continents are organized with multi-layers of colored acrylic mirrors using white, yellow, orange, brown and black, so that viewers are faced with not just stylized shapes of the continents, but themselves, represented by these different colors. This encourages the viewer to think about the difference between surface color and how they are as individuals.
