According to Article 5 of the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights, no one shall be subjected to torture or to cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment or punishment. Yet, our very own President of the United States, our leader of the “Free World” as said countless times that “torture works”, that he will do everything in his power to “bring it back”. Using over 30 different articles I found on the subject of torture related to Trump, I was genuinely surprised to find so much information in such a short amount of time. Articles ranging from: his campaign trails, some before and after he won the presidency, and even others after his inauguration! I took screenshots of the articles from various sources such as the New York Times, the LA Times, CNN, The Guardian, even Business Insider! Using a black background and a large san serif font, I tried to put emphasis on the words first, so the reader will know instantly what the topic is about, but have to look closer at the articles if they want to know where the topic stems from, and potentially inspire them to do their own research on the subject. For your information Mr. President, torture DOES NOT work!

Middle Eastern girls and women face oppression every day of their lives. Many of them compare the feeling to “being invisible” almost like a ghost. I wanted to incorporate friendly childish ignorance trying to make her feel welcome, but at the same time use the “ghost” theme as “invisible” or “translucent”.
