     Dueling Court Reporters , 2016. Image by Ashley L. Wood.  Banquet chairs, mic stands, light bulbs, stenographs, steno paper, wood, plexiglass, vinyl.   Dueling Court Reporters  was created for Obstacle Course, an exhibition at the New Arts Center in Newton, M.A. This sculptural work, a play on dueling banjos, highlights the theatrical nature of the courtroom. By replacing the court reporter with an outdated stenograph, the work questions the role of the reporter as a gatekeeper of language and truth in the courtroom.
