A Drill for Reimagining Wall Street

A Drill For Reimagining Wall Street was a project that was meant to be a sort of experimental parade on Wall Street, just after the financial collapse, that included possibilities for other ways to imagine an economy. The problem was that it was part of a large festival of pieces that were scatted all over New York City, and even though I tried to promote my event as much as possible, only 3 people showed up (they were also my friends). The “parade” was more an awkward intervention that anything else- we stood at the old market building and I took video of my friends showing the signs that we had made in a nearby park. Tourists watched, but only because they were waiting for us to get out of the way so they could take photos of themselves.
