Planned Parenthood Studio Exhibit
designed with Jessica Dobkin and Deborah Grossberg
This project is about getting people through.
As Planned Parenthood is expanding into Queens to serve the greater New York community the problem of creating an environment for the service of a large audience is to create a place where a large number of people can be served with minimal difficulty, in some sense. However, efficiency only partially alleviates the issue. This project also hopes to embrace inefficiency by creating an intervention on waiting, which is actually the bulk of the Planned Parenthood experience. This experience is amplified in the unique environment of a Planned Parenthood, where politics and security overlap in this flow. As such, this project is a collection of micro-interventions on flow taking this unique context as an engine.
