The “Yummy” series is about the high rate of unprecedented murders
in Chicago. It is centered around the image of Robert “Yummy”
Sandifer, an 11yr. old killed by the very gang he had killed for. In this
series the central figure of Yummy is composed of names of other
children who have been killed over the years.
The American flag reminds us of the glorious history of the United States.
My turning the flag upside down, and through the nontraditional use of the U.S. flag we're reminded of the historic imperfections which are apart of its history, and since the great majority of these youth are non white we seem unable or unwilling to solve the problem.
Variations and repetitions of the Yummy base visuals point to how these crimes are repeated over and over.
