The Sound of Silence

by Virginia Tech

This piece is a tribute to those women that came forward against Harvey Weinstein, which began the “me too” movement. Seen here are the names of the Weinstein accusers (as of October 2017) breaking through the lyrics of the Simon & Garfunkel song “The Sound of Silence.” The overall shape of the letters form The Weinstein Company logo, which is dissolving into an hourglass. This symbolizes how societal change can take a long time, but these women coming forward has set that change in motion.
