The global public is invited to experience Artifacts of Decarceration and Restore Berkeley (Peace Room) by 2018 Berkeley-Rupp Prize recipient Deanna Van Buren inside of CED's newly launched VR experience Virtual Bauer Wurster. Below, follow the steps to download and experience the exhibitions and VR platform.
The exhibit in the Virtual Bauer Wurster First Floor Lobby will present full-scale models of several mobile responses that Designing Justice + Designing Spaces has created and deployed as part of their work to address the root causes of mass incarceration. These include a mobile refuge room for formerly-incarcerated people; mobile vending units for micro-entrepreneurs; and the Hit/Hug Punching Bag, which was created for youth to interact with in preparation for peacemaking. Visitors will be able to enter into and engage with 3D models of the artifacts of decarceration, and in doing so they’ll be exposed to a range of design responses at a small scale. The includes imagery, videos, and descriptions of DJDS’s work in action in the world.
