ACT (Diogenes) features the legendary Greg Jacobs, who performed in San Francisco's Fisherman's Wharf until his untimely death in 2014. 

For this video, Jacobs re-creates his (in)famous act by performing for the camera, shifting the interpretation of the gesture. Part of a larger project collaborating with street performers in an exploration of performance, perception and public space.
