From Supply and Demand, pg. 201:
The Medium is the Message series is similar to the Urban Renewal series, in that it’s also about the reclamation of public space by the people. “The medium is the message” simply means that because street art is illegal there’s a political statement imbedded in its process, even if there’s no literal political message in the subject matter. Street art is a stellar example of actual free speech, but free speech is more of an idea than a reality. Street art is not only an act of expression, but also of defiance. I’ve been arrested 13 times for my street art and fined or threatened by multiple cities, but the freedom is well worth the sacrifice. If the presence of street art can inspire people to express themselves and/or question things, then arrests are not in vain. Power to the people!
