In collaboration with mixed media artist Masud Olufani, the student team helped research and conceptualize an art installation for the Partnership Against Domestic Violence that seeks to “embody and personify the statistic that one in four women will experience domestic violence,” Mackey says.

The resulting artwork consists of a series of 100 small hand-sculpted faces created by Olufani, each with varying expressions. Every fourth expression reflects the impact of some form of abuse.

Team members included Catherine Labiran, Ashley Bruce, Mark Aghatise Igbinadolor, Wesley Jeon and Isabelle Saldana.
