A Thousand Cuts – the war on the non-rich

A video

A THOUSAND CUTS, a time-lapse video from “Morning In America,” an installation by the artists Nora Ligorano and Marshall Reese.

The words “Middle Class,” hand carved in ice, melted in the garden of Jim Kempner Fine Art in NYC on Saturday, June 18, 2011. Weighing more than 1 ton, the sculpture measured over 15 feet wide and disappeared in 8 hours.

The video compresses the entire event into less than 2 minutes. It was inspired by Senator Bernie Sanders’ speech on the floor of the Senate last December on the effects of the budget cuts on the middle class. It is orchestrated to music by composer/violinst Michael Galasso.
