TWIT Spotting

Photos of drivers Texting While in Traffic (TWIT), were published online and enlarged onto billboards around the San Francisco Bay Area. Featured on: CBS News, The Today Show, TIME, Huffington Post, Creators Project, among others. 

Anything you say

Several thousand mirror-finished door hangers reading: “Anything you say can and will be used against you” were distributed to homes in San Francisco, disrupting a sense of security and inverting the symbol’s usual call for privacy.

As documented in Jon Ronson’s piece in the New York Times, one stupid tweet can ruin someone’s life. Or words said in private can be broadcast by a former partner, and result in public humiliation. While the acts themselves aren’t defensible, the punnishment often outweighs the infraction, or lapse in good judgement. We’re doing this to ourselves.
