Safety First is an ongoing project exploring the misappropriation of safety materials in public space. The key element of the series is the humor which rises in the visual from the misappropriation itself, as throughout our lives we are taught about appropriate boundaries and the lines which we should not cross, yet when these materials are employed in an unorthodox fashion, they lose their power of authority and become foils to themselves, as their own perceived strength – as barriers which safely and functionally guide us through our collective space on an ongoing basis – is lost.
