107 Seconds is an art project stretching over many mediums and academic disciplines. Every 107 seconds, an American is sexually assaulted. My project, 107 Seconds, will bring awareness to the issue of sexual abuse and assault on the campus of Valparaiso University. Detailing faces of sexual abuse victims, this interactive installation will create a murmur around campus about this issue. Evolving from sketches, into illustrations, vectors, and then patterns, the final product will be a laser-cut acrylic tiled wall, with the intention of exhibition on campus. The installation will be supported by a well-designed handout explaining the project, statistics, and personal testimonials regarding the issue of sexual harassment and assault, especially within the campus of Valparaiso University.
