Thesis Faculty and TED Resident Alison Cornyn Tells Stories of Youth Criminal Justice Through Young Girls

Original Posted on TED Residency’s Youtube Channel

It started with a box. Artist Alison Cornyn’s journey with the box became a transmedia project called ‘Incorrigibles.’ The project tells the stories of ‘incorrigible’ girls in the United States over the last 100 years – beginning with New York State. Drawing on the personal narratives of young women in “the system,” the work investigates the history and present state of youth justice and social services for girls.
