The Glass Ceiling
The Glass Ceiling is an interactive narrative that facilitates an intimate dialogue on its namesake issue. It magnifies specifically on the design or creative industry. The term, coined in 1979 by Katherine Lawrence, represents the point in which a woman's career trajectory is interrupted by a number of gendered obstacles.
The narrative is presented on Dura-Lar, affixed to glass, and read through a magnifying glass. The physical transparency mimics the transparency on the issue, and that despite the public dialogue, it persists. The text is small and cellular to reflect the numerous infrastructural obstacles that create the glass ceiling in women's jobs, and consequently, careers.
