PCPS was a participatory architectural installation that questioned how design could enable dialogue in contested public spaces. Visitors were encouraged to share their voice and contribute to the discussion at a series of events for the ArchiteXX-led design action for the last remaining abortion clinic in Mississippi. Attendant programs included lecture panel and discussion, film screening, design charette, and MiXX meeting.
The installation comprised a curtain track suspending 594 postcards rotated on 66 dowels. Creating a private space within the public realm of the gallery, each postcard contained a story, message, call for action, or graphic responding to a series of prompts regarding the role of design in providing safe access to reproductive care.
