Who are You? - Light projections - dimentions variable

For the Convergence International Art Festival symbols of men and women were projected on walls throughout downtown Providence, RI. These figures, based on the international symbols for men and women, were in groups of three. Each triad included the standard boy or girl symbol and two additional figures.

These figures are stylistically similar to the boy or girl symbol, but portray different physiques that can be seen around us. The standard symbols stood in comparison to symbols that more accurately describe the general population. As people moved throughout the city they saw various triads in different locations. As they saw these groupings they were faced with the question, "Who are you?"
