Raise Your Voice

Raise Your Voice, 2017
Processing, webcam

This piece prepares and trains silent majorities for the age of protest. In our current world, there are many bad things happening, and without raising our voice, we may soon be overpowered by them. The screen asks audiences to raise their voice, and every time a sound volume reaches a threshold, it shows photos that were taken at the 2016–2017 Trump protests in Baltimore. It also celebrates the beauty and power of the protesters.
