Ongoing Matter (OM) is a multi-platform, traveling collection of posters that mobilize civic participation and political engagement. The exhibition provides a visually rich entry point into the Report On The Investigation Into Russian Interference In The 2016 Presidential Election, or, as it is more colloquially known, the Mueller Report.
The OM site, consequently, serves as a digital companion to the physical/in-person exhibition. Beyond highlighting work from the show, custom coded components enable users to see close-up details of each poster, read the portion of the Mueller Report that inspired each poster, and engage with a timeline feature that breaks down key pieces of the original 448-page Muller Report and the individual posters in an interactive desktop experience. The site design as a whole emphasizes one of the key overarching OM project goals, which is to make complex information more easily understood by a wider audience.
