Unfixed/Unfixable Dress Rehearsal

With assistance from the unflappable Liz Otten, I conducted a test run of my project at 7 sites along 14th street, all currently empty storefronts.

In the hope of eliciting more memories of these stores and their previous occupants directly from former patrons, some of the phrases were simple questions I've been using on fliers and posting along 14th. Additional fliers with contact info were left at each site.

Other phrases were short poetic sketches of fleeting moments on the street.

Perfect weather and nothing but positive responses (or curious stares). Even the Union Square maintenance guy choose not to sweep up my letters of ash.

Some folks from the City Meditation Crew were out doing a rehearsal as well.
