While cleaning out some old files, I came across old rental applications and lease agreements, many of which I had never read. Please Cooperate is a reconfiguration of these texts spread across four large sheets of cast paper. The monotonous and authoritative language of these contracts is rearranged into nonsensical, repetitive, and mantra-like configurations which shed the original context or meaning while preserving motifs of bureaucracy, order, and uniformity.
