JÁ is YES in Icelandic.
As the images roll on in their rhythmic affirmations—I start asking questions about the word YES—Yes to what? YES to freedom? YES to consumption? YES to keeping our way of everyday life? Or YES to melting the icecaps? YES to the roar of disappearing glaciers? Or YES to our ability to still have any agency over this catastrophe? So much starts to rush into the vacuum of the ambiguity of YES.—York Chang (Artist, Activist, Attorney, Los Angeles, CA)
