Sanctity Scarf

The 2017 Presidential election continues to raise serious questions about the future of the United States and the beliefs that inform American policy. This uncertainty has made it increasingly difficult to make art in the midst of this ugly period in this nation's history, which ultimately began to shape the creative process for this project. The visuals of this scarf were generated by graphing and contrasting two separate sets of data on a state by state level: the number of facilities that provide abortion services and the number of facilities and individuals that are licensed to sell fire arms. The drastic difference between these numbers highlights a major hypocrisy in American policy and begs the question: how does this nation value life?
