Deliberate conscientiousness in our experience with works of art is a crucial paradigm adjustment, as Algee-Hewitt emphasizes that remediation is “an ongoing process that is unavoidable” if the relevance of a work is to survive the test of time. It is vital, therefore, to consider the influence of the medium and the era when approaching a work of art. Creative works are ephemeral and beautiful in their temporality, and the fluidity of meaning is what makes art ageless and universally applicable.
While the official Transgender Day of Remembrance site lists over 70 trans people killed worldwide since November 20th, 2014, Transgender Europe reports 271 trans people murdered between October 2014 and 2015. This number is consistent with stats from another monitoring project that reports that over 1,700 trans people have were murdered in the last seven years. The total number of deaths due to violence are even higher, as this number fails to take into account those trans people who have taken their own lives, and those trans people whose trans identities were erased after their murders.
