Artists’ statement:
The piece represents time in a new dimension. The 526 white strikes on the Black body represents each second the officer had his knee on George Floyd’s neck. There were 526 missed opportunities for his fellow officers to speak up and prevent this murder. #JusticeForGeorgeFloyd


Try to hold your breath for 526 seconds.
