Consider haiku and road signs ...
Curbside Haiku,a DOT safety education and public art campaign
launched in November 2011,
is a set of twelve bright, eye-catching designs by artist John Morse
that mimic the style of traditional street safety signs.
Each sign is accompanied by a haiku poem.
The “Curbside Haiku” installation can be seen citywide on 144 signs
to promote road safety.
Each design and haiku delivers a safety message by focusing on a transportation mode. Placed near eye level in high-crash locations
near cultural institutions and schools,
the colorful signs draw attention to the critical importance of shared
responsibility among pedestrians, bicyclists and motorists in keeping New York
City’s streets safe.
I have played with labyrinths and breasts,
haiku and Stations of the Cross,
umbrellas and dolls.
