A large lightbox displays an image of an empty basketball court enclosed by a chain link fence. A playground can resemble a place of innocence, and yet, depending on its context, it can be stripped of that assumption. At the center of Smith's presentation is the question of when and why innocence is guided away from certain demographics and yet given disproportionately to others.
