The book is an alternative accordion fold structure with multiple fold-down pages that form both an evocative and intimate page-turning experience or an exuberant, immersive gallery photo/sculpture installation. The book serves as a provocative vehicle for Weber’s photographs of the Occupy Wall Street encampment, the Eric Garner protest marches in New York City, a protest march of the Tibetan community in Brisbane Australia, the Woman’s March in Olympia Washington (in 2016 after Donald Trump was appointed President-elect), as well as some other personal protests. The text is all found on the numerous signs of the protesters and in the ubiquitous signage of Manhattan. The piece is intended to seed the concept of intersectionality into the consciousness of the viewer.
Elegantly print-readied and printed by Catherine Carnahan at Martin Studio in Murphys, CA, on an Epsom 9880 using 8-color, K3 UltraChrome ink and technology.
