In Bruised, I look at the victims of police brutality and their families. I embed their image, printed directly from the internet, within soap. (Please see Capital Cleanse.) The image bruises, stains and cuts right into this soft material which is revealed as participant washes his or her hands. The project was installed at Vermont College of Fine Arts as part of "Art as Advocacy."
