Installed for Sexual Assault Awareness Month, #MayWeKnow illuminates the stories of survivors of sexual and gender-based violence through an interactive installation - sixteen printers relay anonymous survivors’ stories provided through an online submission form. New Yorkers are invited to submit stories anonymously through the website MayWeKnow.NYC and watch them print almost immediately. Each submission activates a corresponding incandescent bulb, creating a visual representation of how many stories are received at any given time. An organic pool of anger, grief, doubt and hope will emerge from cascading ribbons of paper.
