From the artist:
Cacophony chronicles the individual experiences of people of color, from the American Deep South through Southern Ontario, as they negotiate identity formation within, around, and in spite of white privilege. Their experiences are rated on an avant-garde “Privilege Scale.” Through video and audio installation, the artist brings to light the intersections between marginalization and representation, always, always surrounded by the physical embodiment of privilege.
