Slow Reality is a public performance blending Ezra's interest in Slow Walks with a meditation on what the artist feels is the largest evil that humanity has created for it's self, namely money. The idea behind the Slow Walk is to move ones body at the slowest possible pace while still being in motion. An enormous amount of physical information is being processed in an effort to move at this pace. The result for the performer is a sort of time travel, in that the concentration needed to maintain this pace removes the full recognition of the already existing pace of life around the performer.
