THE SCULPTURE

Metal bases inspired on coat hangers, paper mache flowers, Intertwined business accessories and foliage transitioned from one side to the other. 

THE PERFORMANCE

The performance was a 10 minute flash mob that encouraged pedestrians to join the piece with the intent of generating some sort of reflection of the relationship they have with local businesses and their role in their economic situation.

The scrip, a sort of Discovery Chanel documentary style that described the main characters' day during office hours.
