De-Code Compliance

The Department of Reflection's De-Code Compliance Team has been assessing publicly accessible outdoor areas since the Spring of 2021. Who does our public infrastructure truly serve and how are these dynamics visibly apparent in our common areas? How can we collectively better address these concerns? DoR's De-Code Compliance Team (currently  Jenna Balfe, Najja Moon, and misael soto) conducts exploratory field research to find out the answers to these and other questions via alternative methods. The public is invited to watch and engage with us as we work. Finding are offered to related institutions afterwards.
