having always been intrigued by street art, the rebellious feeling i get with it, and the effect it can have on people, i chose to do a research project on that particular media. i like how accessible it is; everyone can see it, no fee or special membership needed.

after watching documentaries on banksy, chase, and other artists,
i decided to try to make stencils of my own. often times graffiti has a negative connotation, so my experiment became and act of "graffiti for good." my stencils were phrases that contained simple, positive messages for the viewer, i document this experience in a short film and then created mini versions of a few of the stencils into postcards to be handed out at my senior exhibition.
