dc.description.abstract <p>The purpose of this design was to engage the design process with social justice issues. I sought to answer the questions: how can we use design to tackle and engage in conversations about critical issues, and how can we use design to actively communicate political and social identities, motivations, and awareness? Within the context of our current political climate that is marked with aggression towards communities who have historically experienced discrimination, how can we use design to think more critically about our own positions of power, privilege, and hierarchy? To engage with critical questions about privilege, power, and authority, and to bring attention to social inequalities of Black lives I created an ensemble intended for protest, specifically protest of police brutality and excessive force with deadly weapons, which have impacted the Black community and the murder of the hundreds of unarmed Black or African American people by the police.</p>
