Imagine focuses on bringing about conversations of social injustices through serious consideration of the ridiculous question, “How many bubbles in a bar of soap?” which was asked during the Jim Crow Era to prevent minorities from voting. Two black and white “i” figures, with a “shimmering rainbow bubble mirror” suspended between them, evoke consideration of the concept of self and race. As the wind ripples across its reflection, a giant bubble forms that floats away, like a captured thought. The experience draws together the chemistry and physics of soap bubbles, with critical thinking about America’s history of racial injustice.
