Mapping Silence, Liberating Public Space

The metro car, platform, and tunnel are spaces overrun by violence, perpetrated by those who believe depth/distance gives them a license to attack and harass women. It is more urgent than ever to listen to all of our testimonies. We propose hearing as a performative act, capable of showing us that depth is can be found at ground level.
