The Metabolic Studio is seeking veterans and Veteran supporters to come out and be part of our historic photo on 11/11/11 at 11am on the National Mall. This photograph is inspired by and pays homage to the Bonus Army’s Encampment on the Mall in Washington DC in 1932.
As artists and activists we believe in the power of creativity to
incite transformation. We have constructed a camera that has
traversed the USA to build photos of our country in this time
of radical need.
