OFFICE DIALOG entry 5

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.

(clockwise from top right; “Zones of the Borders”; “Live for Nature”; “Your Body is Citizenship”; “Rights are Internal”; “Friendship and Respect”; “Play is Duty”.)

(clockwise from top right; “Zones of the Borders”; “Live for Nature”; “Your Body is Citizenship”; “Rights are Internal”; “Friendship and Respect”; “Play is Duty”.)

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.
