19. The City Is There To Haunt Us

May 18th, 2011 | spirit tracks

Take one street. A digital spirit track. Antenna ghosts whispering at us. All of us experiencing an ethereal presence in the street. Because our brains are being magnetically boiled by a constant blooming of experience inducing fields from everywhere.

I am in Berlin, standing in front of a few hundred people involved in the theory and planning of the digital cities of the future, and saying to them: Is this what you want to do to us? You fucking monsters.

(I got a laugh.)

The city is there to haunt us.

Perhaps we might hold up our phones, and see the spirits on the screen, through the camera, via an AR (Augmented Reality) application. Seeing the spirit track on our ghost box.
