Take the Reiter Symbols Questionnaire
When artist Chris Smith Evans read that 70% or more of sexual assault and human trafficking crimes go unreported, she asked how art could change that statistic and also protect the identities of the victims and witnesses of the crimes. That inquiry led to the creation of a silent visual language of 18 graffiti-like pictographs called Reiter Symbols. The symbols are so simple that anyone can write them on any surface with any material at hand. The purpose of this website is to provide you with the opportunity to help design the symbols in a 5-10 minute sight-recognition survey. You may participate in any of three anonymous, online questionnaires below.
With approval from Winthrop University's IRB committee, visitors to Chris Smith Evans' website may participate in one of three polling initiatives by clicking the appropriate button below. You may withdraw from the questionnaire at any point, however your answers will not count unless you complete and submit the form. Each poll is completely confidential with no IP addresses or personal information recorded. You may return to the website after completing the questionnaire and share the link with others.
