Installation, Braille on thirty suspended paper sculptures
The Universal Declaration of Human Rights is a document that lays out the fundamental rights of all human beings. It was first presented by the United Nations in 1948 in a rare moment of international solidarity and represents humanity’s common desire to never again repeat the many atrocities witnessed during the Second World War. My artwork is a visual representation of that Declaration; each suspended sculpture patterned with a translation of one of the Declaration’s thirty articles into Braille.
