Nicky Enright, Sense Us 2010
An interactive wall painting by Nicky Enright

Racial classification has been an official part of every U.S. census since the first one in 1790, despite what scientists and others see as the dubiousness of the subject. Sense Us 2010 presents the 21 official “races” listed by the Government on the 2010 Census. This interactive piece is to be repeated every ten years, updating the differences.
