- Round 15
FENCELINES: A Collective Monument to Resilience
The ‘Fencelines’ project proposes a temporary, participatory art installation between the Richmond neighborhoods and the Chevron petroleum refinery, which has polluted the air, water, land and people of this community for generations. Slats in different colors are placed on the fence itself, with ribbons attached animating which way the wind blows. Designed to amplify the voices of the community here, individuals and families are invited to record their stories and messages on these slats, documenting the impact of the petroleum industry on many lives, and together forming a collective monument to resilience.
