Unusual Senior Project to Draw Attention to Sex Assaults

September 3, 2014

A senior visual arts major at Columbia University has created an unusual senior project to draw attention to the issue of sexual assaults, New York Magazine reported. Emma Sulkowicz, who says that the university mishandled her rape allegations, announced that she will carry a mattress with her everywhere she goes this year, as long as the man she says raped her remains on campus. She is calling the project "Mattress Performance" or "Carrying the Weight."
