‘‘I’m not here to watch you, to study you, to analyse you, to judge you. I’m here to be with you: all the shifts, all the seasons, to walk out the whole City with you.’’ I face each worker, shake hands, and say: ‘‘Thank you for keeping NYC alive.’’/Performance duration: 11 months, at least 1 to 2 8-hour/per day work shifts. With 8,500 sanitation workers. Courtesy Ronald Feldman Fine Arts, NYC.
