Ecce Homo: Trace Evidence

Ecce Homo ("behold the man") are the Latin words used by Pontius Pilate when he presents the scourged Jesus Christ, bound and crowned with thorns to a hostile crowd shortly before his Crucifixion.

Ecce Homo: Trace Evidence images are created in response to Donald J. Trump's policy of institutional child abuse taking place on the Mexican border. These images bear witness to a time when our government creates orphans by permanently separating migrant children from their families. I bear witness to the defense of the indefensible. Refusing to call a cage a cage does not transform a cage into a chain-link partition. In Donald Trump's America migrant children are incarcerated.

The ongoing Ecce Homo series of mixed-media images are electrostatic prints that begin as appropriated digital images of Donald J. Trump political rallies. The source images of Ecce Homo: Trace Evidence were created by the Deservings Cruft. These cruft images are digitally altered, large prints are made and altered again with the addition of mixed media.
