Brooklyn Bridge Forever Extended

On October 15th, Chiara Bernasconi, Kamomi Solidum and I met at the base of the bridge to give the final incarnation of the “Brooklyn Bridge Walk”. We had each planned our parts so as to play the bridge according to our own scores. We planned that the 3 participants who had signed up would each choose an artist to walk with.

Chiara, in a cast from a broken bone in her foot, had planned to ask her participant to physically assist her in walking over the bridge. I was going to walk quietly hand-in-hand with a participant over the bridge. Kamomi had planned to ask existential questions of her participant in concert with their place/position on the bridge.

We were all set. But the strong winds, we think, kept our participants from showing up. What to do? Our walk was delayed yet again.

After debating whether to continue the walk ourselves that nite, find strangers on the street to walk with us or cancel it altogether, we decided to continue the walk on our own terms. We thought it best to separately complete our part of the walk with a participant of our choosing in our own time, and we'll write about it here. Details forthcoming:)
