I feel like all of the people who deal with my exhausting range of emotions are going to be granted an awesome afterlife. Like, you can’t tolerate this much bullshit and not be rewarded in your afterlife.

STOP

2-channel HD projected video, Running time 7:16, 2012 Stop is a 2-channel projected HD video installation. The videos are projected on two opposite walls. One projection features young men from East New York Brooklyn, the other, young men from Liverpool UK, each of whom have been stopped numerous times by the police. In the video each repeatedly states the number of times they have been stopped. Stop was created as part of Postcode Criminals, a collaboration between Dread Scott, Joanne Kushner and young adults form Brooklyn, NY and Liverpool, UK. In 1996 NY police chief William Bratton met with his counterpart Ray Mallon in the UK to share zero tolerance policing strategy.  The result was that youth in Liverpool and in New York were further criminalized and have been drawn into an unusual symmetry by police and governmental forces.  Postcode addresses the effects of police intervention in their lives and their communities.
