Violence by Design is a project about the quiet imposition of hegemony, normalcy and uniformity, and the objects, systems and constructed environments which bring shape to its power. It is about the underlying cultural codes that govern our bodies, dictate our behaviors and orient our desires, and the designs that naturalize such codes into our everyday lives.

Our current endemic state has left a disproportionately affected population due to a number of designed systems that sustain a divided, individualistic, fear-based society. Growing death rates have brought attention to the harsh conditions of carceral structures, but the roots of their capitalistic violence travels far beyond this heightened season of visibility. Violence by Design criticizes the creation of detainment architectures and the inherent hostility of incarceration, examining the constructed notions of crime, innocence, delinquency, weapon, defense and victim — further addressing the designs that work to optimize, obscure, and maintain these systems.
