First Hand - Massive Media Installation Proposal

Made by Anna Henson

An interactive installation for Domestic Abuse Awareness, situated in the New York City MTA Subway system.

Created: December 17th, 2016


"First Hand" is a public interactive installation that aims to raise awareness of domestic abuse through a two-part experience : A tangible, intimate interaction which generates media that is reflected in a constantly renewing collage, signifying the collective experiences and community reached through the installation.  

"First Hand" is site-specifically located at the Times Square / Port Authority MTA Subway Station in New York City, both on the platforms and in the walkway above them.
