project for a street corner is a series of unannounced group performances staged in public space in different cities, adjacent to the site after which each is named.
In Connaught Place, in the heart of New Delhi, there is no crosswalk or underpass to aid pedestrians to cross the road at this point. Those wishing to get to the other side wait until there are enough people around them, and then advance in a horizontal line, lane by lane, across the road. As a performance, a group of five repeatedly crossed the road through traffic for ten minutes, along with everyone else crossing at the same time.
