The installation “View from the High Ground” renders dehumanization—the cognitive shift that allows humans to treat one another in terrible ways generally reserved only for animals—as an interactive process. Genocide is the most extreme expression of dehumanization. The piece focuses on nine of the genocides of the past 500 years: Genocides of Native Americans, African Americans, Australian Aborigines, Armenians, the Holocaust, genocides in Cambodia, Rwanda, Bosnia, and the genocide of Rohingya in Myanmar. It consists of nine hand made books drawn into the pages of an old zoology text, arranged in chronological order, embedded in slate and placed on a tall white washed wood tabletop supported by pipes and furnace parts. The interactive component of the piece, presented here, forces the viewer to experience dehumanization, to literally feel their hand in it, as they page through the images. My intent is to awaken the viewer to recognizing this practice as they transform images back and forth between human/beast/predator/vermin/parasite and various chimera. Through recognition we can end dehumanization and in the process stop genocide.
