This activity was developed as a way for visitors to respond to emotionally charged issues presented by the artists in this exhibition. Visitors were invited to share how the work made them feel by leaving behind a colored bead that represented an emotion in a test tube at selected works of art. They were also able to see the reactions of others and view the work with a new perspective.

It felt like a game. I had permission to decide what each piece meant; the power of meaning-making had flipped from artist to viewer.
