︎︎︎ Prairie School
is a social practice photography and design project that explores performative female anger.
Featured images were created through salon-style photo shoots in which collaborators discussed negative experiences with street harassment before being photographed in high-risk urban spaces at night. They are invited to style themselves in outfits they would not wear in public for fear of eliciting unwanted male attention, and perform their rage for the camera. Images are used to create protest posters available for free online download, democratizing the project and making it possible for the posters to be printed and wheatpasted by women everywhere. Banshees posters have appeared in cities that include New York City, Washington, DC, Los Angeles, Chicago, Seattle, and Austin.
