The Glass Ceiling is an interactive narrative that facilitates an intimate dialogue on its namesake issue (magnifying specifically on the design or creative industry). The term, coined in 1979 by Katherine Lawrence while an employee at Hewlett Packard, represents the point in which a woman's career trajectory ceases to grow due to a number of gendered obstacles.
The narrative is presented on Dura-Lar, affixed to glass, and read through magnifying glass. Despite transparency on the issue, it persists. The text is small and cellular, like the obstacles that make up the glass ceiling.
