"We Became Statues" explores the mental health system as a metaphor for the process of abstracting an individual and the construction of social invisibility. The work synthesizes a series of interviews with Catherine Arline who worked for New York City and State in myriad capacities, including social worker and case supervisor, for more than forty years. Her audio serves as the foundation of the piece, tracing us through decades of experiences in the New York mental health system. The visual footage echoes the circuitous constructions of Arline's narration.
