Dig-nificant Metamorph is a video art representing a notion in which 'this' dignified defiance is fueled by the state of '20 and the self-worth, courage, temperance, and injustice.
This piece is an adage to person(s) of marginalized. Using photography, moving image, and sound which is interwoven to create the video art piece and also the use of self-photography came about from re-examing the image of Rosa Parks On The Bus and imaging her thoughts and action, using the clenched fists as the symbol to her comments in her autobiography, she thought "The time had just come when I had been pushed as far as I could stand to be pushed, I suppose. I had decided that I would have to know, once and for all, what rights I had as a human being, and a citizen"
Rosa Parks (February 4, 1913–October 24, 2005)
This piece resonates in what the year '20 and the life experienced as a black and the marginalized.
The title of the artwork derives from the two words; Dignified and Significant.
Dignified is regal in meaning when applied to someone "saying If you say that someone is dignified, you mean they are calm and deserve respect. While the significant definition is of importance or noticeable; esp. in leading to an important change. The artwork has latched onto these two definitions of the words, by responding to this systemic catalyst that exists within our community to forms of the marginalized.
