The Manhattan-based City Meditation Crew is a fictitious city department whose workers make silent gestures in “public” spaces to inspire passers-by to pay attention to their surroundings, both physical and cultural, one moment at a time. Clad in white coveralls emblazoned with the orange “slow moving vehicle” triangle, CMC workers are recognizable as they complete mundane tasks a little more contemplatively than usual, breathing new possibilities into their performance and interpretation. CMC members remain nameless to emphasize collective actions over individual identities.
