New York commuters are venting anger and frustration over Donald Trump’s surprising victory in the presidential election by indulging in collective therapy — writing messages on Post-it notes and sticking them on a subway wall.
“Am I the only one who is scared?” reads one message. “I need a hug” and “I am angry” are among other notes on thousands of multicolored squares of paper affixed to a tiled wall in a tunnel at the 14th Street subway station.
By Thursday afternoon, the wall held some 3,000 notes, an astonishing production in just 24 hours since New York artist Matthew Chavez parked himself there with a table and a sign advertising free “Subway Therapy.”
Earlier this year, he came up with the idea of setting himself up in the subway from time to time to offer opportunities for stressed-out New Yorkers to let off steam by writing little notes. (AFP)
