Description

2013
Performance

Rank and File is a performance examining the value of potential (untapped) capital through some of New York City’s more elusive surplus resources. Led by two college students with the assistance of the two artists, the students engage attendees in lively discussion, critique, and debate to rank the assembled file of options according to collectively determined value.

The Rank and File of latent capital is a provocation, calling awareness to the unexplored asset spectrum of our shared daily experience, while surveying the deep web of value systems that exist between us.

In collaboration with Nancy Nowacek
