Detroit Homeland Security: Don't Ignore The Messenger

This project of Detroit Homeland Security--Bryce Detroit, Shanna Merola and Kate Levy, was developed for the Porous Borders festival in May, 2015. These letters were found in Ken Cockrel, Jr.'s archive at the Walter Reuther Library at WSU. We selected, enlarted and wheat-pasted images of the letteres on the closed section of the Detroit Greater Hospital, on the north border of Detroit and Hamtramck. As Shanna remarked, a letter that is marked "adamant refusal" and then put in a for 35 years drawer is worthy of enlarging.
