BARRIERS
Barriers is a collection of created objects replicating the shapes and structures of the city grid, fencing around empty lots and construction sites, and the lego-like form that new and cheaply made buildings in Philly resemble. It’s a personal catalog of tools that are harnessed by oppressors to futher their goals of gentrification and displacement, as well as the echoes of what new construction has taken from our communities.
