Tony Labat, I WANT YOU, a project for Live Art at SFMOMA. Design by MendeDesign. Photography by George Westcot.

If you recall, back in September Tony Labat staged an event in the Wattis Theater, riffing on the iconic “I Want You” army recruitment campaigns, asking Bay Area residents to make their own demands of the public in live performances, with the audience determining the five winners via scantron-style voting. The winners have had their slogans—and their likenesses—transformed into posters which are going up all over town next week. Congratulations Kali!

Kali Eichen has an extensive background in acting, dance, improvisation, and educational and technical theater. She is a writer who dabbles in short fiction, food blogging, and recipe development.

    Hi Suzanne,
    Thanks for highlighting this remarkable campaign. Recruitment redefined. The photos of everyday people make the images familiar. This closeness is contradicted in an interesting way by the distance created by the authoritative format.

    Congratulations Kali — As a pastry chef Kali has probably already generated countless smiles.
