10/26/2004: "Looking at the City"
The GPS Eye changes the City
I've found that in thinking about Geostash it causes me to look at the city somewhat differently. It's like there is nowhere to hide, nowhere that could be considered "hidden" or "under cover" because I suddenly assume everything is coded with some kind of GPS marker. Every square centimeter. Annotation everywhere. Like TRON but with postmodern messy everyday graphics.
Then I think about hiding my coded Geostash somewhere...and the artist assigned to uncover my stash is on a long retractable cord that pulls them towards it....whether they like it or not.
