- Part of...Nothing Special
- Gallery 1
There are soothsayers walking amongst us. Sometimes they carry staffs and sometimes a warm coca-cola cup filled with coins used to beat out the rhythm of the street. In a ranting monologue, toothless, shirtless, filled with song and spit, this man, James E. Jones, speaks out like a barometer of the times, walking about in the streets of New York in the aftermath of the destruction of the World Trade Centre - the public are in shock, mesmerised and being fed repeated images on TV, a senseless reality ahead. For James E. Jones, this event is not a surprise, it is part of the phenomenon that is his understanding of our times. He's been waiting for everyone to finally wake up.
Co-Edited and Co-Produced with Pearl Gluck. Featuring James E. Jones.
