Slow Jam, Public Matters

Led by Reanne Estrada, Slow Jams are a creative call to action for safer streets. On Nov. 7th for two hours, USC, Public Matters, and Kid Watch transformed Exposition Ave & Vermont Blvd from a high-speed intersection into a spectacular stretch of bold, beautiful art, and public performance.

The graphic, inspired by the Melbourne Metro Train's viral 'Dumb Ways to Die' ad, calls attention to the campaign 'Fight on for Safer Streets'. Photographing the event was challenging, given the harsh lighting conditions and the surrounding traffic.
