The book, What are you Looking at? details four social experiments: mending and returning red solo cups from a fraternity’s yard, hanging a banner hand stitched with “You Have Everything You Need” in places of commerce, placing postcards in public places with a prompt to be returned to Erin Wakeland, and en plein air painting in the Meijer Superstore. Each experiment is framed in essay form as Wakeland uses interviews, photos, diaristic writing, and other documentation to reflect on her relationship to the topics at hand. She explores the relationships between worthiness, ordinariness, and what happens to people’s attention in a capitalist system through interventions in everyday happenings.
