This project is inspired by the documentary "13th" by Ava DuVernay that I mentioned in the previous post. After watching 13th which focuses on the prison industrial complex and how a loophole in the 13th Constitutional Amendment has been exploited to re institute slavery, then living through yet another circus of a presidential debate and then the farce of Columbus Day, it was all a bit much to take and expressed itself in the work.
This piece is also a test of the latest version of Rebelle, V.1.5.1. The latest update fixes the canvas rotation/pinch and zoom glitch I spoke of a couple of posts ago. It also adds support for a variety of languages as well as other fixes.
