Hate Crime

In 2011 I worked with members of the Transgender and Transsexuals On The Move, and the LGBQTT Citizens Alliance advocacy groups in San Juan, Puerto Rico to visualize the high rates of violence that this community endures. For one week I travelled with my hosts Sophia and Tatiana, around the island to visit approximately twenty sites where crimes occurred, as well as to places holding personal and symbolic value for the crime victims and for the Trans communities. We created rubber silicone impressions from various surfaces at these sites.
