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.

** Stay tuned to website for exact time and location closer to the event date **

About the Deconstruction Workers:

"We aim to deconstruct the way we interact with our surroundings by creating spectacles that disrupt the sites we occupy."
