"This lighting equipment projects a quote from Jose Antonio Vargas, a Pultizer Prize winning American journalist who revealed himself as an undocumented immigrant in the New York Times (2011). This text acts as a political and social barometer for our current moment and combines the ethos of this statement with the function of a searchlight."
