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.

About the Deconstruction Workers:

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

What is a Flash Mob?

Webster's New Millennium Dictionary of English defines flash mob as "a group of people who organize on the Internet and then quickly assemble in a public place, do something bizarre, and disperse."
