True Crime, 1997

True_Crime

True Crime was a project that came in both 2-D and performative forms. The public was asked to bring a piece that in some way chronicled a crime they had committed. Crimes were mostly drugs and work scams, but other like illegal border crossing and some major felonies made their way into the show. This showed that criminality is a sociological trend more than weak character flaw. We all have criminality in our identity. In the performative version the public was asked to commit a crime that has “humanitarian value.”
