At the beginning of Occupy I made a painting with the word "Thinking".  I placed it on an abandoned radar station.
I set up an "art studio" at Occupy Oakland to make protest signs, and made a second "Thinking" banner.
In front of city hall, I hung up a 2006 painting depicting a future Martian Occupy encampment.
The painting was taken down by protesters and used as a shelter.

Spring 2012 I returned to the mountain to recover the first Thinking painting. It had been ripped apart and scattered by the wind.
