Ai Wei Wei at Alcatraz

Ai Wei Wei's exhibit at Alcatraz prompts meditation on freedom, expression, and contstraint. The colors, shapes, and mood of my photographs taken at the exhibit inspired me with this project. 

The 'bars' are photos of cells now filled with porcelin flowers and voices of activist musicians and speakers. The space of imprisonment is now filled with the beauty of hope. The kite soars to where many of us cannot, asking us which lines are the bars, and which lines are freedom?
