"At 5 a.m. on Thurs., March 6, with slashed fingers and shredded forearms, I installed a sculpture of a wheelchair I fashioned to look like barbed wire on the hill leading to the chapel. With a colossal cross appearing at its peak, it quoted Stephanie Hubach: 'The antithesis of justice is oppression. It’s a harsh word for most of us, and when we think of it, we probably think of what I call "active oppression"—the intentional holding down of another through the use of power in a way that’s immoral and inequitable. But oppression can be passive as well. It involves the holding down of another through what is not done, and it’s generally a matter of neglect, which stems from ignorance or indifference.'
It remained eight hours before being mangled by the wind and Facilities."
