In O’Neale’s upcoming Welcome toParadise installation, Bound//Unbound will be a public art installation that uses sound narratives to tell the story of the journey of enslavement through the Trans-Atlantic slave route and freedom through the saltwater railroads to the Bahamas by incorporating Miami’s history and involvement in the saltwater railroad as a mile marker to freedom.
