          Had to replace audio as the original audio was very badly recorded; apologies for the shaky cam, it was hard to keep steady amid so many people. Audio: Boom Bip - The Use of Unacceptable Colours in Nature

                    Photos & Soundscape from Occupy Wall Street encampment 9.28.11. I'm fascinated by the cogent, yet whimsical consciousness displayed in the signage. https://occupywallst.org/ “3. we believe that the signifying activity of a given historical phase constitutes a decisive determinant of the transformative possibilities of that phase. The subordination of this specific level, the abandonment and the negation of its effects on consciousness and change, always coincides with an overdetermined regression by the state of things en acte, reinforcing themselves by means of local contestation;” from “The Revolution Here Now Seven Points” Tel Quel, number 34, Summer 1968 With its fever pitch of global media saturation, few recall that the phenomena we now know as Occupy Wall Street was at first utterly ignored by the Fourth Estate. Occupy began, like those indignados and that Arab Spring, with a whisper on a Book of faces, which has since gone on to be publicly traded like a $38 (+/- 10%) whore on this very Wall Street. “Why isn’t the Times covering it?” we said in small voices that became angry shouts which grew into rage that even 140 characters could not contain. Then so many people were talking not just whispering that not just the New York Times but every other Time had to say at least some, one, often dumb thing about Occupy. So, the most plum of the dumb things ever uttered about Occupy was that it was a movement without a message, or rather, a movement with too many messages. It was not monolithic, with digitally processed, pre-printed, mass produced, easily branded signage, like the (dying) trade unions or a corporate ad campaign, although it did come with a snappy slogan. During the early days of Occupy, I tried to capture the cogency of the handmade, folk art of the signs in a digital folk art video, which I posted on Vimeo. To me, the message of the 99% was quite clear. It was not monolithic, but I liked that: a signifying trickster who kept me on my toes. In this video: I see the symbols of Occupy: {pizza boxes turned into signs}: solidarity, brought by supporters before the kitchen was set up and {origami pink slips}: evictions and unemployment like the pink slips that led to the foreclosures that led to the Occupy that led to threats and then eviction by New York Authorities who grew ever more rabidly violent. I hear the hum of Occupy: music made with bucket drums, urgent, emergent political discussions smattered with the whimsy and praxis of life: which Starbucks will you pee in? Where’s the trash? Why isn’t there recycling? We should build our own. It was a glorious din; it sounded like freedom. It was the freest I have ever felt in this country tis of me. I understand you may not have felt or seen the same. And that is the point. I still see the signs of Occupy, everywhere. “I would define the poetic effect as the capacity that a text displays for continuing to generate different readings, without ever being completely consumed.” --Umberto Eco
