"Projections", Installation in a four-person show (Steve Coy, Deon Foster, Dave Sanders, Cedric Tai) Detroit Industrial Projects, Russell Industrial Center, MI (2009)

Visitors were presented with a blank projection which they rightly assumed they could write their responses to the phrase "black people are less racist than white people" to be displayed pubicly next to the work. These comments would be projected on a clear surface that had been painted white. The conversation of what was being written became archived as the acetate was on rollers. Written responses ranged from inflammatory to flummoxed.
