To give one a sense of the transformations happening at the installation at DiverseWorks, here is a montage of the signs that have hung on the model portico during the course of the exhibition.
Each phrase relates and refers to the types of internal rights that all humans should have and claim to have a fulfilled life and citizenship. (see Nussbaum’s Central Human Capabilities). They are made in Spanish, but I added the translations for our readers. There are two more weeks of the exhibition. The sign changes every week, so two more phrases will be displayed. Afterward, I assemble all the signs at the base of my desk. It becomes a mass compilation of terms signifying basic human rights.
