A collaboration with The WomanHOOD Project, an afterschool mentorship program for young women of color in the Bronx.
    The collaboration resulted in 1,000 newsprint posters to be distributed to the young woman who take part in the program and a looping motion piece; with both, we sought to strike a balance between WomanHOOD’s collective values, sourced from many members of WomanHOOD, and a more individual narrative provided by one member that explains her personal identity, her thoughts on feminism and womanhood, and why these concepts are so important to her. The visual language is complex in order to communicate a movement and message that’s stronger because of its complexity, not in spite of it, and translate this through a form that was deliberately complicated, cacophonous, and fast-paced.
