Video clip of an action for The Politics of Shoes @mobius :
Viewers interact with the piece by throwing Chinese-made American icons (Nike shoes), at an American-made Chinese icon (the gongs).
Audience members, performers and visitors to the exhibit were invited to throw their shoes (not necessarily Made in China) at the gongs.
This clip was taken at the Monday May 25, 2009 (Memorial Day Observed in the US in 2009) evening of performances.
This installation was the general crowd favorite of the exhibition.
Please note that although John Murphree is principally known as a composer, he also makes instruments - he welded these gongs which he sells indiviidually or in sets if you interested (the Curator bought two of the artist's gongs).
