I'm happy to announce that my submission was included in the "My American Internment" online exhibition. Here's my artist statement that describes my photo submitted.
“All Roads Lead to Freedom,” is symbolic about the pursuit of freedom in America. On a recent trip, my flight was delayed at Chicago O’Hare Airport and I was intrigued by how the design in Gate H, relates to the current issue of Mexican internment camps. The American Flags are symbolic of American Freedom and the pursuit of happiness, the world globe and its glowing lights symbolic of welcoming all who come, and the metal pipe ceiling arch symbolic of the camps that separate or confine families. The question we should ask ourselves as a country, “Are we doing our part as the human family to keep refugee families together and to build a road that leads to Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness?”
