The staggering statistic that around the world at least 1 woman in every 3 has been beaten, coerced into sex or otherwise abused in her lifetime requires us to act.

$PEAK OUT is about engaging the public to respond to this crisis and ending the silence. … Money buys inequality, injustice, and violence. Money procures policy-making and military action. Money captures attention.

The goal for $PEAK OUT is to generate a paradigm shift. Imagine thousands, hundreds of thousands, a million – even a billion’s worth of bills hung on austere white museum walls, in university galleries, and community public spaces. Massive displays of money generate a visceral reaction. At closer inspection, individual messages are revealed. The work is unified by the continuity of material and method.

Hope you’ll consider joining me in supporting Diane Jacobs’ project, “$peak Out”.

Chose a personal message to have laser cut onto a dollar bill, which will then be joined with other bills from people around the world.

PS- it says the deadline is December 1st but that has been extended. Go ahead and join in!
