Pin Light to the Darkness

There is a campaign abroad to promote solidarity against the vile racism and violence that is afloat throughout the world by wearing a safety pin. Doing so shows that you are against racism and bigotry. I would like to see this take hold here and also have it mean that we stand against Trump. We need to find ways to counteract evil and darkness.

Pin Light to the Darkness
Pin Light to the Darkness, 11/11/2016

My idea is that the safety pin in the lamp creates lightning bolts to dissipate the darkness. I used photos of Jefferson Library and Washington Square Park taken on 11/6/2016 to create this composite.

It is spreading: “People Are Wearing Safety Pins to Show Their Support for Marginalized Groups After the Election” NYMag.com

    Evocative image! Since this is not the first time I’ve heard of the safety pin, perhaps it is already spreading!
