Summary
Imagine being looked up and down and being valued as less than chair. Less than an ox. Less than a dress. Maybe about the same as ... a lantern. You, an object. An object to sell. Ashley Bryan goes to the heart of how a slave is given a monetary value by the slave owner, tempering this with the one thing that CAN'T be bought or sold -- dreams. Inspired by the actual will of a plantation owner that lists the worth of each and every one of his "workers", Bryan has created collages around that document, and others like it. Through paintings and poetry he imagines and interprets each person's life on the plantation, as well as the life their owner knew nothing about -- their dreams and pride in knowing that they were worth far more than an Overseer or Madam ever would guess
