NO WIND presents a unique phenomenon of human billboards as it appeared in the streets of San Diego, California, spring 2011.  The work re-examining a format borrowed from the language of protest to that of advertisement.




While one channel shows the documented phenomenon, the other shows an 83 years old Cambodian sign holder in a spontaneous monolog, thus constructing a choreography that bears both poetic and political meaning.
