This is a site-specific wall drawing created for Occidental College's 125th Anniversary Alumni exhibition. It was made by writing a text repeatedly until a portrait appears. The subject is one of Oxy's first African American graduates, Janet Stafford. The text used to draw the portrait is an excerpt from Ralph Ellison’s Invisible Man which touches on the complexities of social change during that time. The title of the drawing, 1952, aptly reflects the year of Stafford’s graduation from Occidental and the year that Invisible Man was published.
