On first look, Love or Fear is an image that may seem shocking or just a strong image, but it is intended as a serious question. Is intimacy a matter of love or fear? The graphic image can apply to men or women but our thoughts seem to go immediately to women. If a public art program could be so brave to show this image, some public dialogues could be co-produced to address various audiences’ concerns. The vote against Hillary, the lack of E.R.A. passage, the 79 cents to men’s 1 dollar, etc., make me wonder about masked responses to women.
The background image is meant to make it relate to a park as a sample site; it can be changed depending on where it will be shown.
