breaking point - a collaborative project

The Breaking Point Project is a project centering the experiences of disabled, chronically ill, and neurodivergent inmates in order to argue for the abolition of prisons. I was lucky enough to contribute a few pieces to their project, which you can see in full here. Please take a moment to read through all of the narratives and information behind the project. 
︎︎︎ image description: four horizontal, grayscale prints of handwriting. From top to bottom: 
1. text reads “all you can do is lay around”. The text handwritten, with other text faintly visible behind. The print is sparse, with a few thin, hair-like lines moving through the composition. 
2. text reads “its pointless”. A dark gray, abstract field of texture builds next to the word “pointless”, with more thin, wispy lines visible. 
3. text reads “I keep asking & they blow me off”. The top two-thirds of the print feature the words “I keep asking” repeated over and over again until the text becomes a dark mass of abstract shapes. In white, written in the dark shapes at the bottom, reads “&they blow me off”.
4. text reads “I panic so much”, behind vertical strips of white. Abstract lines and textures build tension toward the center of the image, and the text is handwritten with bold dark strokes.
