Creation Date

Spring 2021


WHY THIS SUBJECT? I chose this subject because the fact that so many prisons in the US are privately owned and for profit is unknown, or at least under the radar. The only way that this will change is by talking about it and bringing awareness to it.

WHAT SHOULD WE KNOW ABOUT THE WORK? I put the CEO of Corecivic on the wanted poster because I wanted to draw attention to the fact that even though what he is doing is so wrong, it is completely legal-- and taxpayer funded.

WHAT WAS YOUR PROCESS? I chose to use the wanted poster style so that the viewer would automatically assume that the man seen was guilty, even before seeing what he did. I intentionally didn't put very much information on the poster because I wanted to give enough to catch the viewer's eye, but still make them want to know more.
