Act (Diogenes)

2011, single channel video

Video features the legendary Greg Jacobs, who performed as the "Bushman" in San Francisco's Fisherman's Wharf until his untimely death in 2014. Part of a larger project working with street performers and exploring issues of performance and public space, the title references the philosopher Diogenes of Sinope who performed absurdist actions designed to disrupt, challenge and subvert conventional values and behavior.
