about

Dangerous Objects investigates cases of excessive use of force and death by the police force when they are confronted with unarmed black people, spanning from 2012 through the present day. This project features the objects that the victims were carrying that the police saw as a catalyst to proceed in their use of violence. These objects include a hoodie, cigarettes, a broken tail light, a vape pen, and much more. Unfortunately, there are victims who were alive at the start of this project that will not be at the end of the project. Say their names.
