Nina Williams – Fairy Tale

<< Return to the Virtual URS Main Page

Faculty mentor: Colleen James

Artist’s Statement: Dehumanizing crimes and perpetrators not only causes harm to the accused, but society as well. From a lack in prevention to the misscarriage of justice, dehumanization is a true detriment. Through the use of fairy tale metaphors in a poetic sense this project aims to depict the pitfalls of dehumanization amongst crime. Dehumanization is not new, nor is it specific to the United States, this only meaning the effort to prevent it is increasingly important. Only by understanding the harm caused by dehumanization can we begin to address the root of this issue, and perhaps lead to the betterment of society.
