"CamLab is the eleven-year collaborative art practice of Anna Mayer and Jemima Wyman. CamLab’s feminist and collective practice models a horizontal and intimate relationship, which they believe is necessary in a culture that tends to devalue compassion, communal concerns, the mental health of women, and radical care.""For Reguarding Room, CamLab facilitated on-campus workshops at UH, at which participants remade feminist works of art from history about rape and sexual assault, in miniature.
