The Cycle of Women’s Reproductive Rights in America by Savannah College of Art and Design
This is a timeline consisting of 20 years in American history, all of which had major influence on both the progress and regress of women’s reproductive rights in the United States of America. The progress and regress is shown via the saturation of menstrual blood on each pair of underwear; the more saturated a pair is the worse the year was. In order to see the information and dates for each year, viewers must interact with the pair of underwear by lifting them up to reveal the content in its entirety. The names located on the front of each pair work to bring an emotional and more human element to the piece. The names and corresponding years are composed in a way that is reflective of the memoriam we often see today.
