Bed Bug Project
Long story short, my apartment had a bed bug problem earlier this year. Most people don't know much, if anything about bed bugs, but they're a growing problem in cities, so I decided to address this in my final project. I'm working on a collaborative piece with an online community of bed bug victims at bedbugger.com.
I was inspired by hobo symbols and wanted to create a image to tag infested buildings (like mine) to warn people away, but also to serve as a sign of solidarity among fellow sufferers of bug trauma and raise awareness of the problem.
Check it out at this link, which has more pictures and a detailed description of my goals and process.
if anyone has also had bed bugs and would like to become a part of the project, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org for further information
