About the artwork

One Crisis At A Time is a body of work inspired by the history of protest as an expression of public concern, and the myriad marches and assemblies that have shaped the world by realizing the feelings of multiple communities through action. It is a referendum on the commitment to a singular issue in a time of intersectional need.

The works themselves are made from fragments of language taken from the history of protest slogans that have been carved into wood, reminiscent of sign-posts, and then burned. These components are then re-assembled into various works that each become a form of intersectional poetry created from one and two word lines that each invoke the memory of its originating phrase, but joining together to create a new, collective meaning. Burning becomes a generative, unifying gesture rather than a destructive one, marking a moment of assembly rather than a moment of conclusion.

In this way, the works inspire a new means of participatory consideration. We can and must care about one thing, and everything, always, at the same time.
