Whirl-Mart is a culture jamming exercise that combines meditation, protest and art.

Supposed shoppers slowly push empty shopping carts silently through store aisles. Participants will not purchase anything and seek to form a lengthy chain of non-shoppers, continually weaving and "whirling" through a maze of store aisles for up to an hour at a time. Participants describe their actions as "a collective reclamation of space that is otherwise only used for buying and selling". Whirl-Marters seek to mimic and mock what they perceive as the absurdity of the shopping process.

Help be identified by your fellow whirlers by wearing a white shirt.
