After Sandra Bland was found dead in a jail cell in Texas, the twitter hashtag #ifidieinpolicecustody was born. Comedic, angry and heart wrenching messages began flooding the internet, providing a handheld mirror of collective anxiety. On July 23rd, Damon Banks wrote, "#IfIDieInPoliceCustody burn it all. Let me be a spark. Let you be a phoenix. Embers and ashes everywhere." Embers and Ashes brings the twitter feed to the gallery. A hand typed screen shot slows down the tweets by placing a body behind the words. Part memorial, part wake-up call, this video projection runs four hours long and focuses on just one day: July 23, 2015 of the twitter feed from #ifidieinpolicecustody.
