The Curated Thresholds of Vulnerability
MFA Graphic Design Thesis
Boston University, Spring 2019
Interactive installation, digital media 

Inspired by the intentional disclosive nature of one’s environment and self, I further explored how our environment aids in unveiling our personal vulnerabilities through facilitating self-disclosure. This is a two part thesis, in which part one was displayed the lobby of the gallery, the “input” zone. Here participants would draw a card, answer the question on the back on the stand provided, and take the card to the gallery, the “output zone,” which displayed the answers to the cards. In order to stimulate vulnerability, I asked participants a variety of questions – some are very surface level, some have deeper meaning. What participants didn’t know is that as they are writing in the “input” zone, what they are writing is being live streamed and projected to both a website and the “output” zone in the gallery. To help maintain anonymity the live stream is on a 36 second lag from the recording of the camera in the input zone to the projection in the output zone. This relates to the idea that we are more likely to disclose when it feels anonymous but don’t fully know what happens to our disclosure and how others will relate or react to it.
