It has been a little while since I have updated this blog with information on the FVDTF exhibition, but this little video, taken by the University of Dayton staff, is well worth adding.
The fabrication and print management was done by Kate Hixon, at Hixon Design Consultants, and working with her on this made my job of doing the graphics easy (easier?).
Also, working with Joel and Leora on this project was fantastic. It was challenging to come up with a visual representation that was suitable for the organisations behind the project (PROOF: Media for Social Justice and the University of Dayton's Human Rights Center), as well as the community of Ferguson.
I hope that this exhibition has an impact in terms of expanding people's knowledge of what happened in Ferguson and creates a more personal approach to the stories of those who stood up for justice for Michael Brown and the community.
In terms of research, this exhibition allowed me to delve deeper into the CHaSSMM Model of analysis, and how important it is to be aware of the cultural, political and social context of a project, which corresponds to the ideological framework that it sits within.
This design of this project was documented on this blog as part of Willhemina Wahlin's doctoral research into the design of difficult knowledge exhibitions at the School of Communications and Creative Industries, Faculty of Arts & Education, Charles Sturt University, Australia.
