Joel Garreau

The author of Edge City and The Nine Nations of North America, previewed the findings of his upcoming book, Our New Selves: The Future of Human Nature (rejected title: While God Wasn’t Looking — Garreau says the publisher feared the righteous wrath of the religious right). Soon, he says, we’ll be living in a world of bio-enhanced people — and not just Barry Bonds. While spending a year hanging out at DARPA (Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency — the central research and development organization for the Dept. of Defense) Garreau met a telekinetic monkey named Belle who can play video games with her brain — a handy skill, it may turn out, for guiding an F-22.

He also discovered a team of telepathic marmosets who can transmit messages to each other mentally — sure to lead to a sequel to Bringing Down the House. On the human horizon, Garreau sees pills that will improve memory, give us better immune systems, strengthen our skeletons, endow us with talent in the arts, math, and languages, or give us Olympic class athletic talent. "All the comic book superpowers are already in existence or are in engineering now, and will be ready for humans before your mortgage is paid," he says.

This bridge is apparently famous, and in a few animes and associated games. I just like how red it is.

FOLLOWING BIT is a reenactment of Vito Acconci’s FOLLOWING PIECE, originally performed in New York City between October 3 and 25, 1969. FOLLOWING PIECE was part of “Street Works IV”, a series of performances and conceptual events sponsored by the Architectural League of New York between October 1-31, 1969. Acconci followed a person for a few minutes, if that person entered into a private space or a car, or for several hours, if the person went to a cinema or restaurant. Acconci carried out this performance everyday for a month. He typed up an account of each ‘pursuit’, and, the following month, he sent a report to a different member of the art community.

Coll.eo’s FOLLOWING BIT is presented today to a broader audience via different media, in the form of tweets, machinima, digital photographs, prints, maps, and diagrams. The month-long performance generated an enormous set of data, consisting of 23 digital videos in high definition over 118 GB in size; 13300+ digital photos; 60 digital prints; 23 written accounts sent in Tweet form (archived), plus several typewritten pages of notes, framed, and mounted to wall and to a board.

This folder documents a following bit took place in the streets of Liberty City on July 23 2013. The episode lasted a few hours. The photographic documentation was automated. The computer camera took pictures every three seconds. The result: approximately 5 GB of screenshots. This is a selection.
