Processional (2007)

May 2007 (Union Square, New York)

Todd Shalom & Niegel Smith as PERMISO

For Processional (2007), we led a silent walk in concentric circles around Manhattan’s Union Square in memory of those killed in the Virginia Tech shooting and the Iraq War. For 40 minutes, we spoke solely with the mass movement of our bodies and interrupted the public space to offer a moment of reflection and community through shared experience.

Participants: Jamyl Dobson, Kim Hamlin, Todd Shalom and Niegel Smith.
