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. 

Ramsey’s Artist Statement

The media has shaped and framed the way I perceive race, class, and gender. Due to the media, people of certain races, classes, and genders are expected to behave or act the same way as the media. The media always has a target. For example, every time new technology is introduced, the media finds a way to target it to everyone. One thing I’ve noticed about the media is that they construct stereotypes.
