DESCRIPTION: Through an anarchist act of reflection Bifurcated Radical Anarchist Cultural Enterprise, or B. R. A. C. E., starts with embodying the United States political system through a mirror world of intersectional feminism. Taking the hybridized form of literature, performance art, product design, new media and installation, B. R. A. C. E. seeks to reveal conspiracy and subvert systems that we are legally bound to follow, but ethically unable to support. Dependent on subjective perspectives for personal verity, B. R. A. C. E. asks what is truth in a political system that lies and how do we occupy that space?
