THE NO I.C.E BOX
︎The signature project of STOP1 is titled "NO I.C.E.", a series of sculptures that integrate visual motifs found in the streets of N.Y.C. and iconography sourced from various representations of Immigration Customs Enforcement agency (I.C.E.). Our sculptures utilize the familiarity of the bodega ice vending machine as an entry point, blending the "I.C.E." acronym to articulate a powerful double meaning. ‘NO I.C.E.’ raises a mirror to the viewer’s gaze; it is a lens that extricates language and images in order to challenge perceptions of American identity beyond the confines of nationalism, ethnicity, and race.
