The Deconstruction Workers are announcing their latest action: "Let it Rain" Flash Mob at a yet to be named San Francisco mall on Saturday, March 15th, 2pm.
As a way of challenging unmediated mass consumption in our culture, they will create a peaceful and humorous spectacle that will temporarily disrupt the functioning of a site of commerce.
A group of people will "disperse" fake money from a top story mezzanine, while a set mob of people scramble to gather the faux-dough on the floor below. The "money" will carry slogans such as "Your ad here" and "A dollar for your conscience" mocking the excessive consumption prevalent in shopping malls.
