An immersive and interactive installation to raise awareness of sexual consent.
Working with the University of Kent, I produced a prototype version of the installation for my Independant Realised Project.
It was showcased at the Drill Hall Library, at the University of Kent in Medway (May 2017).
Over the Summer, the University commissioned me to produce a finished version. Find out about it
I focused on the Tonic Immobility, or freezing: when the victim in response to life-threatening situation ‘freezes’; this response often being misunderstood as passive consent.
The public starts the experience entering the first booth, and listening to some facts and figures about sexual consent. Then, in the second booth, the person listens to testimonials with both victim and perpetrator's point of view. Lastly, the public is invited to play with a tablet, working like a gamebook, to question its own behaviour and reflect itself.
