In America, there are 2.3 million people currently serving time in the prison system. Many are serving lengthy sentences for non-violent drug offenses. Many are disproportionately Black and Latino who come from poverty stricken backgrounds with little resources to build with. Prisoners and ex-convicts are an unseen minority who are often blacklisted in this country and find little to no support upon re-entering into society.
The basis of this collection is to highlight the culture of injustice and the dehumanising effect the prison industrial complex has on our society. The pieces are representations of the iconography that is created by those affected and the fetishisation of it’s aesthetic (from which we as well as other artists and designers are guilty of).
