Artwork and Social Action
Contemporary American artist Chris Smith Evans' work includes textiles, sculptures, installations, collages and paintings. Ms. Evans invites the public to interact with a 200-day, collective social action to end sexual violence and human trafficking by participating in the Reiter Symbol polling initiative, available through the questionnaire on this website. The Reiter Symbols Questionnaire has been presented at meetings of the South Carolina Human Trafficking Task Force through the Office of the Attorney General.
Interactive Polling Initiative
Reiter Symbols' Questionnaire offers 20 easy sight-identification questions in which viewers decide which of several signs will best help victims and witnesses of sexual assault and human trafficking anonymously oust predators.
The Reiter Symbols' Questionnaire may be accessed through the menu above and through links on this website. The questionnaire is available until April of 2020 at which time answers will be codified into an effective, visual code. The poll is conducted in partnership with Winthrop University and approved through their Internal Review Board. It is anonymous and confidential. Users digital information is completely confidential and untraceable. Click here to help design the symbols.
