My concept is to cover all of the racist monuments of the south, some of which people claim is their heritage but represents their racist ancestors fighting to keep slaves amongst other things. If they get to keep their racist monuments, we get to cover them in hoods to call out their true history.
This ad functions through an installation with in Maya Lin's Vietnam War Memorial and is meant to raise awareness to the deaths from the past and present cause my Landmines. 3 Million individuals died in the war from landmines. Using the metaphor of mining equipment a scene alters visitors of the issue. Large sign "Caution (landing ahead, at least you can see these ones). Small Sign: "In the same way 60% of our loved ones died, the Vietnam war is still killing people. Watch for land mines"
I came to the same conclusion as Hannah it seems! :transforming Rio De Jeneiro's Christ the Redeemer statue by adding a bit of pride. As someone who grew up in a christian household it is really inspiring to see christians accepting LGBTQ... people. It would be tough to get permission to install something like this but it would be very impactful.
