JUSTICE Scrabble
1.may.2009
Action

“JUSTICE Scrabble” is an art action that took place with several groups of eight people, each person wearing a white T-shirt stamped front and back with one of the letters that form the word JUSTICE and JUSTICIA.

The participants joined the protesters at the Immigrants Workers March in Los Angeles on the May 1st, and spontaneously arranged themselves in different configurations and sites in line next to each other to make the word legible while viewed from both back and front.

The words JUSTICE/JUSTICIA shouted out where the cues for groups to scrabble, dissolving, rearranging and then regrouping themselves spontaneously to make the written words legible again. The action took place repeatedly every 10-20 minutes along the march towards Placita Olvera.
