Signs of the Times considers perspectives on land, power, belonging, and identity in Portland’s communities of color who reside east of 82nd Ave. The project incorporates film, text, animated maps, and archival photos overlaid with art created by young people growing up today in "The Numbers" alongside interviews with contemporary immigrant families, social activists and students from Madison High School and Portland YouthBuilders. Also included are images of Harrison Park School students who created a shadow theater performance about isolation, acceptance and belonging as part of my "Annexation and Assimilation" show at the old APANO space on SE Division and 82nd Ave.
