The piece succeeds in this context on many levels. Hill is there to fill prescriptions— engaging viewers in transactions, raising issues of connectivity, subservience, obligation. (Many of her works concern commerce or providing service.) The prices suit the times—a “menu” of services she renders includes $20 for a remedy script or a recipe script; $25 for a remedy packet of herbs. All three are $50. Feldman’s booth is centrally located, adjacent to a lounge so it’s more like a welcoming corner lot than a storefront. The installation’s design—lemon yellow and olive green walls covered with lively signage—invites people in. The concept is many-layered, yet simple enough to immediately engage passersby.
