My public installation is now up! by Gabriel Sosa

Do you understand what I'm saying? is a site-specific installation that explores the imperfections and ambiguities inherent in language and communication. Drawn from my experiences as a court interpreter, the questions printed in vinyl on the glass exude a sense of doubt, power, and intimidation that can be found not only in the court system but in multiple current events, both social and political. On the further wall, the drawings made by hand hint at the more emotional, human experiences at the root of these events - separated, at a distance, and often obscured. It will be on view in Davis Square, day or night, rain or shine, until Dec. 14.
