“Les Fleurs - The Rose" (detail), 1898, Alphonse Mucha. (original here)
I have just scrolled and scrolled down my dashboard, with nothing to reblog that suits my fancy. Perhaps I should unfollow most people I follow and start over. I guess that’s how much interests can change in 4 years?

In February, I posted two pieces in Bed-Stuy on Tompkins and Halsey. These two pieces got the most attention of any pieces I’ve put up so far. Within a few days, someone had written his response to the work directly onto the posters. From there, a woman wrote a response to him. And it went on and, on with different hand-written comments creating this kind of interesting discussion. The pieces remained up until a week or so ago, when the phallic image was drawn. That’s when I decided to try to take them down.
The “Stop Telling Women to Smile” piece remained in tact enough for me to include it in the exhibition. I thought it was important to present in the show, so that people could view these written reactions.
