Action walks down the middle of a street in Baghdad. Action may appear absurd of posture, but today this is simply the posture of contemplation.
Bent over while walking, Action looks carefully at the irregularities in the paved road, assessing the ‘situation on the ground.’ Amid loose gravel and stray shoes, stains and rubbish, Action sees a grid parsing an Iraq in miniature. Within that microcosm, people wander around as if in a daze, pointing, staring, contemplating in silent disbelief. Action observes these miniature people, some of whom may in turn bend down to study the atrocities on the ground below them.
