The Glass Ceiling
The Glass Ceiling, a 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. To encapsulate a high level exploration on this topic, I created an interactive narrative that facilitates an intimate dialogue on its namesake issue, with a focus on the design or creative industry.
The narrative is presented on Dura-Lar, affixed to a glass wall, and viewed through a magnifier. The physical transparency mimics that of the glass ceiling's—it is difficult to break through despite the public dialogue and transparency about the issue. The text is set at a cellular scale to symbolize the granular nature of glass.
