Insertions Into Ideological Systems


As a response to the sexual harassment that I received while riding transit and the insufficiency of print ephemera from the Metropolitan Transit Authority addressing sexual harassment, I appropriated the graphic styles of Metro Los Angeles to create official looking bus cards which I then guerrilla distributed on 70 buses over the course of 4 months. I was working in the art department of Metro at the time, and witnessed the image being posted in internal bulletin boards and surveys being tweaked to address sexual harassment. A few months later, Metro announced an official campaign in partnership with domestic violence agency Peace Over Violence to address sexual harassment. I have been told as of 2019 that the hotline doesn’t work when you call it.
