ACTION: SEE YOUR STORY IN A GRAIN OF SAND
Artist Corrie Francis Parks is pairing stories of a few sentences that show the humanity of people affected by the President’s executive order on immigration with a photograph of one grain of sand. Every grain of sand is unique when viewed up close, and each grain contains a long history of geography and cosmic forces. In this web-based work, the grains of sand are an allegory to the complexity of each person being lumped into one big stereotype. If you, your friends or your family have been affected by this executive order, participate in this project by sharing your story through this form. Check out this project on instagram.
