One

“The One is a map of the human anatomy, made of terms formed to look like parts of the body. The body is used here as a metaphor for inequalities in our society today. There is no hit to what race or gender The One is. The figure stands alone, pieces of it is taken away, showing the instability of our nation. With the issues surrounding us, we have to remember that we are a human race and we shouldn’t judge based on the color of our skin or our gender.”
