Gross Domestic Product is a highly layered, multi-camera video document of Sean Smuda’s performance, which took place immediately prior to the opening of the Art On Air exhibit. Work from his Universal Harmony series was taken from the gallery and into a procession throughout downtown Minneapolis. Six performers brought the framed pieces to sites where photographs that were collaged into the series were made. These were the sites of Black Lives Matter and Occupy marches and of the abstracted essence of transnational commerce along Nicollet Mall. Socio-economic proclamations were read through a megaphone in direct competition with those of fundamentalist street preachers.
