A black and white photograph of the members of punk band, The Ramones. The four band members are posing in an alley filled with junk. They each have long, shaggy hair with bangs, are wearing skinny jeans, t-shirts, and black, leather jackets. Each has a cool and tough expression on their face.
A white exhibition wall with milk crates hanging in a cross shape. The outer facing surface of the crates have been spray painted, starting from the center and radiating out, yellow, orange, white, blue, green, and yellow again. Around the cross are paper cut out images of community members and famous people wearing La Calavera face paint. Propped up on the milk crate cross is a black, round sign with a brown power fist and the phrase “Corazón Indígena Por Las Vida Negras”.

Written on the photograph in white is Gurung script.
A comicstrip of a South Asian woman, astronaut wading through a polluted body of water filled with junk. Behind her is a red, industrial cityscape smoking the sky. At the top, the comic strip reads “What can we say about her as we sit here, caught in the throes of circular time, warming our flayed soles by the fire? Under her skin the rise and fall: of immortal jellyfish, of unspoken pleas & mechanical hands—selfsame shards of this tumultuous universe…{a sigh of the crossroads?} Tattoo her onto the city’s skin, stroke by stroke by stroke.”.

However each item in the space is flat and stylized.
Twelve painted portraits of Chairman Mao Zedong arranged in a grid of four by three. Each portrait captures his likeness but something about each representation is distorted.
