What if we could receive real-time feedback on our social interactions? I developed a system like this for myself using Amazon Mechanical Turk to explore in the form of a performance. During a month of continuous dates with new people I met on okcupid, I streamed the interaction to the web using an iPhone app. Turk workers were paid to watch the stream, interpret what was happening, and offer feedback as to what I should do or say next. These directions were communicated to me via text message.

Thinking about anti-social media 2.0... perhaps an installation about or re: recent deaths, future death, hidden in Eyebeam superstructure? performers hiding out in building, performing only after-hours? leaving small images/debris/residuals/artifacts in corners (each corner trihedral reflections of selves interrupted), momentary gestures, peripheral, almost invisible, after hosted events, strange rooftop images visible from space only, everything unwired, locative in the sense of substance, scattered debris for example, as if something had happened, an accident, rumors spread only by word of mouth, nothing electronic, the street knows... 

something to this, residencies for examples, residence, where's your residence, I live at such-and-such an address...

I am feeling a great amount of social responsibility while doing simple tasks like buying urls and testing regulators. Think it's time for a walk by the river.

The center will serve the region, welcome local initiatives and connect to the global discourse. This proposal describes three potential programs:
