TBWA\Spain created an exhibition using ear bone vibration to raise awareness about violence against women
The United Nations declared November 25th International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women.
70% of women murdered as a result of gender violence crimes in Spain are mothers. In many cases, these crimes are committed in the presence of their children.
The families that take charge of the guardianship of these children often have to face complex legal procedures related to the custody and the children’s economic interests, even against the murderers of their mothers.
To raise awareness about this social epidemic, TBWA\Spain has created “Talking Walls” - an exhibition that shows a reality that, until now, has gone unheard: the nightmare that the sons, daughters and families of the murdered women live after this horrible crime.
"Talking walls" tells the harrowing stories of four of these victims families in order to raise awareness in our society about the need to break the silence surrounding violence against women.
These walls will be exhibited in one of the most representative places in Madrid, Atocha Train Station until the December 1st.
In order to hear these stories through the walls, a team of engineers has developed a technology of bone conduction that manages to convert electrical impulses into a vibration that is transmitted through our bones to the inner ear, where the sound is perceived. The team have turned the surface of the walls into a surface that will vibrate, allowing us to listen to stories once we press our ear against the wall.
