If Only To Be So

Krzysztof Wodiczko transforms the way in which communities deal with uncomfortable issues. He projects human features, namely hands and faces, onto buildings and then amplifies the confessions belonging to those features for the public to hear. Thus, these buildings, these public places, begin to speak to everyone. They begin to speak to and for the community. And these features, voices, individuals can speak to the community about difficult events that have happened to them in the community. In an Art21 session on Wodiczko he said that sometimes it was easier to tell thousands of people your tragedy versus one person.
