    That article about the janitor collecting seized items reminded me of another really important project run by Jason DeLeon, a professor in my department. He’s been collecting artifacts left by migrants in the Arizona desert for years, and has begun showing them in installations. I remember walking through one of the first ones and being overcome by loss. Just walls of hundreds and hundreds of backpacks and water bottles and socks. The magnitude really reminds me that for every roll of toilet paper, there was someone carrying it with a story.

    The NYT covered his installations last year: , but the collection is called “State of Exception” if anyone would like to check it out.

    Thank you for all that your are doing against the administration’s latest fascistic initiative. Today my husband and I are going over to Occupy PDX to deliver some much needed supplies. We must continue our activism and maintain our outrage.
