Where are US--oops, WE--going?

For one assignment (in late November/early December, so after the election) in the Intro to Politics course I taught last fall at Pierce College, I offered an art option.  My instruction was to create a piece that expressed your thoughts, views, values, preferences, etc. about anything in "politics."  I use the quote marks there to indicate the fact that I told them that you could render almost anything as politics, or political.  Indeed, I noted, Marx was wrong...everything isn't economics, it's politics.  But that's an argument for another day.

I liked several of the pieces that the artists presented, and I'll offer up some others later.  But for now, this one, which seems apropos in a particular and special way in this current political climate.

In fact, I won't even explain, interpret or analyze what you see...have what response you want.
