For my final Constructed Image project, my class was tasked with creating a piece centered around a social justice issue or cause. I chose mass shootings in schools of the U.S. The series is entitled “How Long Will We Wait?” The number of candles changes based on the number of victims for each shooting. For those that may be confused about the Enoch Brown picture; Enoch Brown was a middle school located in Pennsylvania where the first ever school shooting occurred in 1764. Native Americans killed eight children and two teachers. Over 200 years have gone by and we are more or less seeing the same level of violence occur in schools across the country. That poses the question, how long will we wait? What we are waiting for depends on how you see the issue.
