Pope.L: Eating the Wall Street Journal, the original performance, I’m out and about in the city. I pick a place to do an action. I have a piece of fabric. I lay the fabric on the ground and I sit on it. And I take this thing and I began to eat it. I'm being very quiet. I'm looking at people around me.
I'm acting as if this is the most natural thing in the world, to eat a copy of the Wall Street Journal. Which I think was an achievement. Because you know, eating a copy of the Wall Street Journal takes time. It's not very tasty. So you really have to focus on this. And also when I did it in the environment I did it in, it was very busy. So you have to sort of shut out this clamor and do this activity and tell your body not to respond.
