up to this point, all of our work has been hand-made with permanent markers (or spray paint) and stencil letters on paper and stickers. i have no plans or desire to abandon this format, however, it is very time consuming. so last night we stenciled six jermalism words onto 8.5 x 11 inch paper and made 100 photocopies of each page, and sliced them into banner form. simple.
each word is intended to provide a commentary on site specific environments or objects in the urban space, much like the 'endangered species' pay phones, 'bill bored' billboards (and the 'for rent' benches, which were also photocopies, inspiring this new approach).
These copies give me the opportunity to focus on creating larger scroll pieces, while still having unlimited ammo for the streets, no longer bogged down with the little things.

journalisn't, vandalisn't, materialisn't, feminisn't, capitalisn't & badvertising, are the slogans we started with, then we walked for hours, as usual. here is a handful of ups from the first night...

more to come...
