America needs the ghosts of slavery to remind us of how our nation was really built. I use the Augmented Reality (AR) medium to give representation to our ancestors. The metaphysical medium, to me, is akin to how we think of the enslaved people in our history. We see them but we pretend they are not there. Marcus Brown
