Where We Land explores the landscape of disproportionate violence against people of color. Place and environment influence cultural perceptions surrounding race, violence, complicity, and imminent danger, and in turn, those ideas affect the ongoing relationship of communities to the spaces they occupy. Despite the increased visibility of brutality through sharing on social media, public reactions to these scenes are deeply polarized and influenced by geographic divides that our digital connection has not successfully bridged. Photographer Zora Murff (Lincoln, NE), and multidisciplinary artists Jordan Weber (Des Moines, IA) and Lachell Workman (Bridgeport, CT) use the physical materials and visual details of urban and natural environments as a vehicle to explore presumed narratives and the gaps between contradictory interpretations of shared views of violence.
