Following the Man of the Crowd

Following the Man of the Crowd is another Spectropolis 2004 project that anyone in New York City can participate in on October 2-3.

'Following "The Man of the Crowd"' is a 24-hour walk in which two participants, linked by text messaging, drift separately through the city in an alternating pattern according to the movements of strangers. Based loosely on Edgar Allen Poe's short story "The Man of the Crowd" and inspired by Vito Acconci's 1967 "Following Piece," Ray and Walton have developed a collaborative performance that involves following strangers over a 24-hour period. Working as a team connected only through text messaging, the two will alternate turns following selected strangers through New York City.

This also reminds me of Following, the movie Christopher Nolan made before Memento, about a lonely writer who follows strangers around London.

You can sign up through Dodgeball.
