This image is a composite of online archives images to generate image architectures representing various facets of U.S. society, culture and related undercurrents that counteract and inform the insidious nature of so-called American Exceptionalism and the American Dream. Our history is solvent and morphs contingent on the reader, the distribution apparatus and the author. Hypermedia, “open source” wikis and the evolution of image sharing technologies have accelerated and fractured our visions of these histories. Protests 1963 – 2020, is a compilation of every major protest conducted in the United States since the March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom protest of 1963 where Martin Luther King, Jr. gave his historic I Have a Dream speech.
