Death of Access is composed of photography, video, performance art and a site-specific installation. Artist Ernel Martinez and teaching-artist Jared Wood collaborated in the coordinating of student participation. The artwork illuminates the challenges and successes that the young people experience during this transitional time in their lives. The burial ceremony titled “Death of Access” by the youth expresses their frustrations with life’s obstacles. Steeped in afro-Caribbean traditions, inspired by jazz funeral processions of New Orleans and donning masks, the students carried the door in a similar fashion to that of pallbearers in a funeral.
