This set of projects Dawson will be executing during her stay at ZK/U will touch on the themes of urban infrastructure and the human prototype. The projects will be painted and recorded to be used as instruments to push the universal understanding of cultural diversity as a necessary and interrogated exchange of cultural diversity. By providing a visual narrative of this connection through the commonality of subjects in their translation to paint and video installations I hope to question modern diversity and art in a civic infrastructure. The goal of these projects is to extract the beauty of diversity that an urban civilization propagates and present it in the same raw, untouched, unprocessed format accessible to all. By celebrating the differences in artistic communication that can help rectify the divide in cultures that cause tension we can enable compassion and empathy to create altruistic urban artivism.
