Angela Shamay Response to Observing the Ordinary pgs 74-120 Pepón Osorio’s Badge of Honor displays two rooms. One room is a prison cell with a projectile screening overhead of a Hispanic father. The other room is a 15-year-old boy’s bedroom with a projectile as well. The link between these two rooms is the wall in between. It symbolizes the kinship between father and son. It symbolizes separation, as well as the connection between the father-son bond. The 22-minute screening shows a conversation between father and son. His son inquires his father on his leave and the father asked about his son’s mother. The mother is the only thing that keeps their family together. She is the “badge of honor”. The art display was displayed in an impoverished middle-class neighborhood, and later in the museum. People who viewed the display related to its meaning because they might’ve had family members incarcerated as well.
