Radiant States: Reflection on Solidarity centers around the arm raised in protest as perhaps the most iconic image of solidarity. Searching online images, I started to focus on this powerful, yet vulnerable gesture across different cities including Cairo, Oakland, Tehran, and Damascus, where protesters disseminated their own footage. In isolating, extracting and processing these upraised arms, I want viewers of my work to feel in the pixellization of the image its deterioration, its falling apart, its loss of color and density. This deterioration is, for me, a radiancy.
