About The Work

This piece uses a combination of poetry and math to advocate for a world without sex trafficking and slave labor. The mathematical symbols on the left, red panel describe a "geometric" property that states the following: between any two (closed) objects, there are "reasonable" neighborhoods surrounding each object which do not intersect.  I use this math principle as a metaphor for how there should be private space between any two people in which the other cannot interfere ie between any two people there should be a "neighborhood" the other cant intrude upon. In a field of pure math, a topological space with this property is called "normal". Therefore, on the left red panel side, it reads "this should be (normal)", which relates to the intimate and personal space of individuals in which others cannot intrude upon, "but sadly its not". The sex trafficking industry violates this principle and causes it's victims to lose all rights to their own intimate space.
