On the other side of the crepe paper curtain, videos help us piece together this whole thing. Wearing crayon makeup and clad in a turquoise tulle dress (or wearing a pizza costume made of cardboard), Soxx runs around Philly, talking to and hugging trash collectors and giving them bagged lunches and throwing them surprise parties (called Happy Trash Day; there's a replica of one such set-up in the gallery) and telling them (and us) how much she appreciates them. It's silly and a bit obnoxious, but in between all of that we learn about the sanitation workers' struggles. In one video, Soxx interviews Mr. Tony, who explains that they haven't gotten a raise in five years, though they've fought for it. And they don't get hazard pay for "picking up things that could destroy your life." Learning about all of this prompted Soxx to run for mayor, in 2015, because "it's the mayor that can change that," she said. She raised money, too, by making videos of herself eating pudding or squishing pickles or whispering a script for people, for five dollars each.
