TRIGGER WARNING; 120 SECONDS

CONTEXT //

  • The #MeToo, and subsequent #TimesUp movements have sparked an unprecedented global conversation about sexual assault.

CHALLENGE //

  • Create an installation, using sexual assault statistics, that transforms human data into a personal, transportational experience.

EXPERIENCE //

  • Based on the national statistic that “every two minutes someone is raped”, pulsating graphics expand and contract for 120 seconds in response to the soundscape of a heart, beating at 40BPM; the rate at which “tonic immobility” is believed to occur in humans during intense trauma.
