"When Melania Trump stared straight into the camera and said, “My word is my bond,” and those words were stolen — whose bond was it? Were the words binding at all? Did that constitute a public promise? What value do any of our words have, and has that value wavered over time?
These are among the questions stimulated by a new free public art installation called "Public Trust," which is currently making the rounds here in Boston. It was commissioned by Kate Gilbert, director of NOW + THERE and was executed by Brooklyn-based artist Paul Ramirez Jonas, whose interactive art exhibit I saw in action." -- Joyce Kulhawik
