At once spectacular and mundane, the documentary practices that have distinguished the Occupy Movement from its inception have dramatized the difficulty of paying attention to the macro-political and economic forces that shape the experience of the ordinary, which otherwise arrives self-explained and is therefore difficult to theorize.
