Multimedia Installation at the Berkeley Center for New Media University of California Berkeley Dec 2015 – June 2016
In response to the phenomena of opossums appearing in campus Title IX sexual harassment trainings, I created a natural history museum-style exhibition with two life-size opossums in the Berkeley Center for New Media's window space outside Moffitt Library.
A digital plaque (video below) shifts between description of opossums and survivors, pointing to ways the comparison is both useful and problematic in illustrating the "freeze" response.
