American History 2000 – 2012
United States Visual Time Line
of Our 21st Century by Gaye Lub
When 9/11 happened I could not stop seeing the events of that day because they were everywhere I looked, television, newspapers, magazines even tabloids in lines at the grocery stores.
I started collecting images and putting videos into the recorder to capture documentaries and political debates of current events.
This exhibit is an attempt to share what WE saw and the hidden connections found in the first 13 years of this century. It is also an invitation to remember and empower ourselves as active citizens, by peeking behind the curtain and building together the reality we want to live in.
These collages and Grid are “copyleft” – meaning that they belong to our commons and you are free to reproduce them. It is dedicated to every human being that lived in the United States of America from 2000 to 2012.
