art of violence

What is it: a social art for woman’s committee to encourage people to speak up about their experience of violence.

Background context: 35% of women had suffered intimate relationship violence. In China, there is tradition of “家丑不可外扬“,women who suffered from violence fail to protect their rights. It created more negative effects for the next generations. And there had been instances of women who suffer the violence of so many times and in the end kill their husbands. I believe that speaking up is the first step and this piece of art allow the women who explode the fact to feel that she is not alone.

How to speak up: Take the user input and leave a scar in the corresponding are.

A future development of the project will be able to get the user input from the QR code, and show each update version of the based on each input.
