Shall Make, Shall Be Panel/Q&A 1

presented by Andy Malone, Cherisse Datu, Golan Levin, Lexa Walsh, Vi Trinh

How do you see your work dif­fer­ent­ly in the con­text of the full group pre­sen­ta­tion? Where has it tak­en you?

arts​.codes (Melissa F. Clarke and Margaret Schedel): V.erses
Amendment X: Separation of Powers and Federalism

presented by Margaret Schedel, Melissa F Clarke

When we were devel­op­ing the con­cept for v.erses, we were par­tic­u­lar­ly struck by the final clause of the Tenth Amendment, which reads are reserved to the States respec­tive­ly, or to the peo­ple.” This unam­bigu­ous­ly reserved all non-delegated pow­er to its orig­i­nal source, the people.

Ryan Kuo: Father Figure
Amendment IX: Additional Fundamental Rights of People

presented by Ryan Kuo

The ques­tion for me is, how do you know your rights? Where does your mind go when it gets a hold of those rights? The Ninth is say­ing there’s a writ­ten space here on this piece of paper, and there’s an unwrit­ten space some­where beyond.

Danielle Isadora Butler: Evolving Standards of Decency
Amendment VIII: Excessive Bails, Fines, or Punishment

presented by Danielle Isadora Butler

Justice is so often envi­sioned by the metaphor of scales and bal­ance. I’m mak­ing a gim­baled mar­ble labyrinth. The gim­bal allows for bal­ance, but it is set by the user. 

Broken Ghost (Arnab Chakravarty, Ian McNeely) + Moaw! (MeeNa Ko): Verbal Gymnastics
Amendment VII: Rights in Civil Cases

presented by Arnab Chakravarty, Ian McNeely, MeeNa Ko

We basi­cal­ly kind of dou­bled down on this idea that the game had to have the per­for­mance of the truth at the core of it. So we elim­i­nat­ed the spo­ken poet­ry because in the per­for­mance of the truth the words don’t real­ly mat­ter at all.

Peter Bradley: NOMOLOGOS
Amendment VI: Rights of Defendants in Criminal Trial

presented by Peter Bradley

The con­ceit is that you’re a ball of ink on the nation­al mall and you’re try­ing to get to the Supreme Courthouse in order to sort of argue your case. 

Shawn Pierre: ___ vs ___
Amendment V: Due Process, Self-Incrimination, Eminent Domain

presented by Shawn Pierre

I’m real­ly real­ly inter­est­ed in see­ing what hap­pens when two peo­ple who know each oth­er real­ly well start to play. Because the peo­ple you know well, you get to know their tells when they tell a lie, or at least maybe you think you do.

Vi Trinh: Cyber Soldiers in Cyber Houses
Amendment III: The Housing of Soldiers

presented by Vi Trinh

What struck me first about the Third Amendment is that it’s the only part of the Constitution that deals direct­ly with the rela­tion­ship between the rights of indi­vid­u­als and the mil­i­tary in both peace and war.

Andy Malone: Standoff
Amendment II: The Right to Bear Arms

presented by Andy Malone

I was drawn to the con­cept of fin­ger guns as a metaphor. I also did­n’t want to use actu­al guns in this project. That was sort of a chal­lenge for myself, to not make this about shoot­ing things or make this about overt violence.
