Originally produced for the Biennial of the Americas in Denver, Colorado, this billboard work comprises a number of adverbs that describe the ways in which individuals stage protests in popular uprisings. These adverbs, as modifiers of verbs, indicate how specific actions transpire, pointing to the strength and fortitude of those involved in protest in public spaces.
