About the Work

“00:15:16 is a set of hashtag GIFs representing a sense of place, examining race, class, religion and environment. They review last year’s overwhelming issue of police violence and the killing of unarmed black men in the diaspora. 00.15:16 wants to oppose the binary of #blacklivesmatter and #alllivesmatter and juxtapose the condition inside an emergency room – that is plastered with imagery of bloodiness, not white or black.”
