These hand gestures are reflective of a society where a woman president has never existed. There are laser cut pieces making the absence reverberate through shadow on the wall. Our present and past carry this absence and these hands show the fight for the future. These hand gestures were taken from photos during the Women’s March in DC in January of 2017.

Make the invisible, visible.
