Illegal is Not a Noun

Dakota Williams

Personal Statement
My name is Dakota Williams, I am an aspiring animator and graphic artist. The work I’ve submitted is meant to bring attention to the unethical use of the word “Illegal” in the context of undocumented immigration. I feel that it is dehumanizing to refer to human beings in such a way. I would like people of opposing views to see this work and understand that undocumented immigrants are not objects and they are worthy of respect. I created this piece for the Amplifier website as an assignment for Thomas Green’s Art 102 class. I would like to thank him especially.
