We wandered through the police mini-mall and the military mini-mall looking for fifteen pairs of white ‘parade’ gloves, size large. We found them, but only after distractedly learning about batons, guns, protective footwear and how to join a mercenary organization. After that we found a source for large rubber stamps, embroidery thread, buttons and various colored pens.
The gloves are now being embroidered based on a selection of handmade maps drawn by citizens in neighborhoods adjoining the five major libraries built by the city to activate formerly marginalized communities. Roads are in black, zones of affection are green and zones of conflict are red.Above are some of the glove drawings we collected.
