Artist Statement Silence is the ultimate undoing of elections. When you don't speak up, or you don't go out and vote, you're silencing yourself. Creating a losing battle. Silence can be powerful, but not in a time like this where you have the freedom to make your choices known and to influence others. At a time like this, silence is the least powerful ability to have. This poster features four individuals of a varied demographic with duct tape pasted over three of their mouths. The last individual has her mouth covered by typography, but it is not completely obscured. She has a voice in this world. She has chosen to end her silence and make a difference by going out and voting.
