History In Motion
Eric Okdeh, 2004
* big musical instruments, buildings, partial people, plants, groups of people, standing people, sitting people wearing hats, balloon, turtle, tiger, El cars and trolleys
* The extreme horizontal proportion and the level of detail on this piece combined with the slanted sidewalk and number of people hanging around outside make it difficult to capture accurately on camera. The pictures are in order left to right with some overlap on the wider panels. The last picture is a detail to show the level of pixelization provided by the tiles.

The Men Can Pledge
2004 (approximate)
* big pledge
* inscription:
As a man I know the realities of violence against women & children. I have taken a hard look at the facts. Millions of women & children are beaten, raped, sexually harassed & stalked every year. These women & children live in fear of what tomorrow might bring. Today I take a stand to stop the violence because I am the friend, family, & companion of those who have suffered. I have made a commitment to turn my private concern into public action. I promise to treat all women & children with dignity & respect. I will intervene when I see destructive behaviors that can dehumanize & humiliate others. I will defend those who cannot defend themselves by taking action. I will promote a new kind of society where decency & respect require no special day on the calendar, where boys are taught that violence does not equal strength & where men stand with courage, lead with conviction & speak with one voice that says "no more".
