This is one of Roberta Fallon's photographs of Zoe Strauss' one-day installation beneath I-95, in Philadelphia. Every pillar has a photo affixed to each side; they are all numbered on maps Zoe and her helpers distribute, and the numbers are written in chalk on the ground. Zoe has copies of the photos available for five bucks each - you just find the photo you like and go back to her stand and tell her the number. At the end of the day people can just peel the photos off the pillars if they want. Some of the pillars in this photo don't have photos attached yet because Roberta took this shot early in the morning while Zoe was still setting up.
This is Zoe's third (or fourth?) year doing this. Zoe is not currently represented by any gallery, she does it all herself. I am so inspired by Zoe and getting excited about next year's Stuffy's Biennial. YAY, Zoe!!!!!!!!!!!!!
