The video art represents 'this' dignified defiance fueled with life experiences as a black person and the marginalized temperance.
This piece is an adage to persons of the marginalized. This is photography and moving image content, with sound and audio are interwoven to create the video art. The use of self-photography came about from re-examining the image of Rosa Parks On The Bus and imaging her thoughts and action, using the clenched fists as symbolism 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)
The title of the artwork derives from the two words; Dignified and Significant.
"Dignified" is regal in meaning when applied to someone, while "Significant" is 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 the marginalized.
