Day 425 @ ITP: The Temporary Expert

Addressing my “publics” who are:

  • People who use public transportation daily

  • Office workers or people who work indoors

  • Hospital patients

  • Highly sensitive people

  • People who can’t be out in the sun in the winter

  • People who aren’t outside for most of the day in any weather

My medium so far is a pair of posters that could be hung up in a lobby of an office building or in place of advertisements on subway platforms.


Questions: Are they too didactic? How to call people to action without seeming didactic? Is it better to ask questions rather than “give answers”? Should I take a more speculative or fictional approach, and how.

How can my research inform ways to instill this message from a science-based perspective/idea but without words (except for perhaps a well-placed title)?
