Whiteness and Media

I want to explore whiteness in America because I see it as a missing piece in the conversation on race. This matters because we cannot reason about the role the white race plays in our lives until we can collectively see that it exists. By deconstructing then weaving ordinary materials my pieces depict the often-unseen impact whiteness has on our everyday interactions and the ways we move through the world.

To be white is to see oneself as an individual, normal, universal and not linked to race. Media, through its oversaturation of the white image perpetuates this idea of normality, creating a landscape where the white race remains powerful but no longer visible.
