4:53 AM - Wikicity – Wikimiror

Ok, so here we go,

Dear Ed


Spring model in-between info:

Sometime during last month, I typed my name in iASP and a blog of a friend came up; a picture of mine was linked to the Michel Serres text u gave us to read, the one which once I read I immediately posted on my blog blabla@Columbia. During the delay which occurred while downloading these links I found out about the wikimania’s 1st world conference that was to take place in Frankfurt 3 days after Constant passed away. At a certain point, a pop-up asked me if I could give access to iASP of the relations produced from my navigation. Distraction is an unpredictable tool, so I found myself reading about the first constitution written inside wikis (and this was to be the Iranian Constitution; an idea produced originally in NYC!!!!). Once I hit yes to the previous pop-up question, several links were visible implying actual locations & movement to any displayed information as well as several ads provided by goggle.

#

Constant real-time defragment:

Several days later I was aiming to visit the location linked to the photo of mine mentioned above; the suggested space was inside Riverside Park at 116st. A smoking, bending tension structure was sited slightly off axis with people around and in it; 4 speakers at its edges sounded at first as drops of water, yet with big amount of noise. The smoke produced form this structure was being used in order to superimpose multiple projections in constant movement; the general picture created was some kind of static: I couldn’t be conscious of a meaningful image, yet I could see still parts of the individual starting media that produced this result. A difficult-to-distinguish looping image of a spiral was to get most of the people’s interest during the time; the conversation was about this image being static. The structure’s surrounding skin was using a CAIDA model to refer to a network of similar structures. (time/save+ look myself at the mirror) Some of the nodes inside this diagram where grey, as being offline (81st and 5th Ave, near the Central Park for example).

#

Responsive interface:

A group of Columbia students are now coming towards my position carrying construction materials: 2 electronically bending plastics about 3m long, with adjusted USB inputs on them as well as photovoltaic units; 3 pieces of wire in order to connect their edges; an LCD skin; 4 speakers ; a smoke machine and several small projectors. They have just bought this pod and are about to impose it next to the existing one. Helping them out in order to compose it, they revealed to me that the first iASP was to be sited at a small park next to the corner of State Hwy & Rector Str.

PS After re-reading this text, I decided not to send it to you.
