Headlines is a reaction to how the media dispenses the propaganda surrounding the victims of police brutality and injustice in America. Using all available technology, I find articles and publications on the web, and broadcast them over members of the African American communities using a projector. These images often carry messages that feed into many stereotypes that are already placed on our community. In many attempts, it’s meant to distract from the real issue. They show the criminal past of a person, mugshots, violent riots, etc. This instead aims more at justifying why our lives are being senselessly taken, instead of acknowledging that there is a problem. While the projections are temporary on their subjects, this refraction distorts the main image calling into existence the lives that have to stand in front of these realities. – Kahiah Polidore
