The Illusion of Scarcity

The Illusion of Scarcity was a sponsored interactive art installation that we built for Philly Create at the annual Phenomenal Women in Philly event on March 30, 2019.

We were tasked with exploring the idea of “A seat at the table” (which was a theme for the event) and making it interactive and instagrammable for all the women in the room.

Below you will see some of the processes of building the installation as well as the end result and how people interacted with the interactive installation.

I’m not a woman so I will never truly understand the struggle they endure daily, but I have a mother and grandmother and while building this I attempted to put myself in their shoes to try and understand
