House of Ruth: Lobby Installation
The House of Ruth Maryland leads the fight to end violence against women and their children by confronting the attitudes, behaviors and systems that perpetuate it, and by providing victims with the services necessary to rebuild their lives safely and free of fear.
In this collaborative project, Carlson worked with a group of artists to develop an installation for the House of Ruth’s new community center in Baltimore. The team included Darcy Argain, Rebecca Burr, Amy Carlson, Alex DiGiacomo, So Hee Kim, Rachel Rusk, Victoria Schultz, Fanni Somogyi, Cynthia O’Neill
The team worked together on ideation, construction, and communication with the House of Ruth staff. Carlson was responsible for designing digital models for fabrication, producing renderings for presentation, technical problem solving and resource management throughout the process.
The installation is in place, but official documentation awaits the public opening of the building.
