You Need To See This College Student’s Artwork Depicting The Lasting Effects Of Sexual Assault

Posted by

19-year-old Emma Krenzer attends Nebraska Wesleyan University and was given an art assignment to create a map of something. She created a map of the human body in relation to sexual assault. She finished this project the day she returned home from the Women’s March in Washington and shared the images on Twitter.

Emma told Buzzfeed that she created the life-size artwork by taking a photo of her friend, printing it out and finger painting over it.

I made this project largely for myself to actually visualize the lasting impact that touch can have on an individual,” she told the site. “I thought about what was true for myself, and also, what I perceived to be commonly true for people in general, when I mapped out these touches.”
