Orange Work - Lexicon

Mandatory Minimum—We Have Moved! is comprised of an urban intervention located adjacent to a Home Depot in Brooklyn and the chain link fence installation at Eyebeam that displays documentation of past Orange Work projects. The Home Depot intervention is comprised of a large printed sign that blandly announces a fictitious increase in the federal minimum wage. The Orange Work method might be summed up as: “Be The State”, by appropriating visual languages to contest issues of spatial dynamics.
