NOMADIC PROUD

This manuscript (free download at the bottom of this page) is a photograph of words (580,529 words to be precise – on 1918 pages) built from hate speech collected over a six-month period Nov 2011 – April 2012, from online news articles, essays, forums, threads, etc. for a purpose only sociology professors, policymakers and judges could truly fathom: an exhaustive Archive of Hate and Dis-information about a racial group.

I first decided to use the Internet after I noticed how the media did not mention the ACTUAL number of arrests in Los Angeles of “RV dwellers” during the 2010 Thanksgiving holidays (52) as if all that misery really didn’t happen. This is a quasi-scholarly attempt, to use the words of the ‘public’ to show how the Settled (those in ’real’ houses) are committing a mini-pogrom which is, after all, defined as a planned campaign of persecution or extermination sanctioned by a government and directed against an ethnic group) the Nomadic group. One thing led to another and I kept going around the globe following a tsunami of bigotry…I took a snapshot to show… a postcard of hate.

It was a conscious and necessary decision to include scholars, lawyers, activists, and other Travellers’ voices so that I would not drown in all the hate, while at the same time, myself and my family, living in an ‘outlawed’ manner. That alone drove my work and forced me to take a colourful photo as I possibly could.
