This is an original seed

The Komagata Maru story is a part of the long tradition of deliberate, exclusionary, racist policies of the Canadian government. This text was taken from archival records of inter government communication. I applied erasure techniques to the document and imposed it over top of the many lives that were lost because of the turning away of the Komagata Maru.  This piece was made in memory of those we have lost and those who have struggled and sacrificed so much, so we could be here now.
