Why Can't You Just Take A Compliment?

    This project battles street harassment with site-specific, subversive signage. Based off of a real personal narrative, the 18 signs span the three blocks where the original incident occurred and escalate in size and intensity of color. The gendered words have been flipped in order to speak directly to the men who encounter the signs, attempting to represent the experience of street harassment for those who don’t deal with it on a daily basis, prompt reflection, and potentially change behavior.
