On October 11, and also October 18, 2009, people in Union Square in New York City were notified by volunteers with flyers and signage that a photograph would be taken from above at 3:30pm. The frame of the image was marked with bright orange tape on the ground. While mimicking surveillance methods, this action gave the public a chance to ‘get ready’ for its picture to be taken, almost invisibly, from five stories above.

Note: Survivaball in image purely coincidental.
