A visual response to President-elect Donald Trump is decorating a subway station on the corner of 14th Street and Sixth Avenue. Matthew Chavez, who created the project Subway Therapy, brought sticky notes and pens to the station, encouraging New Yorkers to write what they’re feeling and post it on the tile wall.
About 2,000 stickies were posted with messages from people around the world.
The subway therapist, who is not actually a licensed practitioner, said the days following the election have been really stressful for people. "I wanted to give people an opportunity to feel less stressed or get something off their chest."
The Post-Its, which he has been handing out since Nov. 9, give people a safe and easy way to vent. Americans are also expressing their concerns about Trump taking office in January with the hashtag #NotMyPresident, memes and nationwide protests.
