This thesis relates my experiences associated to hardcore music (a sub-genre of punk rock) to the aesthetics, intentions, and motivations of guerrilla artwork with my practice as a visual artist. I apply the intentions, motivations, and activation mechanisms from these two art forms to work in conjunction with personally significant images and materials to create space and affectations to consider alternative systems of value. The format of the paper is explored through two distinct voices. One is a "formal artist voice" used for the explanation of research. The other is an "inner voice" describing my train of thought during different stages of research.
