Proposal Title: ...and counting..., 11/24/2007, Performance

Proposal Synopsis: and counting "and counting" is an ongoing performance-based mobile memorial that consists of informing the public of the current number of civilian deaths in Iraq. My intention is to create an active and continuous process of remembering, rather than a traditional site specific and passive monument limited to one time and one space. I will carry with me into public spaces a hand-held memorial in the shape of sphere or globe, with the axis re-aligned to the United State and Iraq. (See drawings/files attached) This object will bear the latest number of civilian dead in Iraq chalked on its surface. I will respectfully approach individuals in public spaces, hand them the memorial which they will hold while I state the current number of civilians killed in Iraq. The duration of my proposed project is indefinite, and can continue on after the war has ended. Once the project is launched, I plan on creating a web component which will consist of a virtual version of the analogue mobile memorial and, like the analogue version, will be continuously updated and travel around the net to remind the public of the current number of civilians killed in Iraq. Tony Allard
