AIR Project

YI Artists worked with artist in residence LaToya Ruby Frazier to create photographs that documented their changing neighborhoods, selves, and a variety of public spaces in New York City. They examined the effects of advertising on society and the ways that individuals make every day choices. Teens also watched and discussed excerpts from the documentaries Century of the Self and the British series 7 UP to further understand the links between propaganda, advertising, and the ways in which social class affect an individual’s future. 


George’s Artist Statement

The media makes people think a certain way, and that way is mostly used to get people to buy their products. Sometimes I see Spanish ads and think that only Hispanic people watch Telemundo, but then I remember that in the end it’s just another ad.

Construction site: I grew up around construction sites, because whenever my dad picked me up on weekends we would always go to his job site. Ever since, I have felt at home there.
