Suffragium
IN:SITE, My Vote Performs

Milwaukee, Wisconsin 2008

The right to vote is an essential freedom reflected upon in this short animated video about the contradictions and ironies surrounding the struggle for universal suffrage in Wisconsin. Centennial Library and its substantial collection of 19th century monuments provided the characters and setting. Statues were animated and liberated to cast their votes.

“Suffragium” was one of eleven projects supported by IN:SITE Public Art for the November 4th, 2008 election day.
