    The development of this project to design and construct a gang-proof suit began with a series of conversations with youth from the Back of the Yards community of south Chicago.

    We directed our dialogue to address and, when appropriate, confine selected conditions (power, violence, poverty, abuse) situated within the young people's lives as a primary place to deliberate on what the work could represent.
