KEITH STAFFORD WAS MURDERED
2021, 28 days
in Tallahassee, FL
Keith Stafford Was Murdered not only engaged the local houseless community in its preconception, but it invited the citizens of Tallahassee to become participants in a constructed social narrative. By spectacularizing preexisting conditions, a departure from reality helps participants question what they are willing to accept as the status quo. The undesirability of transient persons is an unjust reaction to their displacement. Unempathetic populations view such persons as phantoms – for to live in purgatory might mean we are dead.
