A video frame from Maya Jefferies’ Fallout Shelter

Listen as artist Maya Jeffereis discusses her current installation, Fallout Shelter, which is based upon a found United States Navy training exercise. This video installation explores moral values through the decision of choosing six of ten people to survive in a post-apocalyptical hypothetical scenario. After some discussion, she will invite the audience to take on the roles of members in this fictional society and participate in the same experiment.

Maya Jeffereis is a New York-based artist working in video, performance, and installation. Her installation Fallout Shelter is a video installation and participatory project that engages viewers in a conversation about identity politics.
