Nate Hill dressed in a blue fish or dolphin mascot costume holding a sign offering “Free Bouncy Rides” to New York City subway riders. This is a part of his Free Public Services series in which Hill has lead groups of people on rummaging tours of Chinatown garbage and taxidermy, performed house-calls dressed as a bear (called Death Bear) collecting objects causing painful memories for individuals and destroyed those objects, and later allowed anyone to take their frustrations out on him as Punch Me Panda. These prints are sold as a pair and were recently exhibited at the Conflux Festival 2012 at New York University.
