Public art



The documentary, We Live in Public tells the story of Josh Harris who founded Pseudo.com, the first internet tv site, in the late 90's.

After much success, he moved on to conducting controversial human experiments about how this new media and technology would change how people live and behave. For one experiment, he put 100 artists in a human terrarium and had webcams film every move they made.

For another, he lived in a loft under 24 hour surveillance for 6 months which led to his girlfriend leaving him and chronicled his financial ruin and mental collapse.

Crazy. There's a reason I shut the blinds. Public anything freaks me out!

That is wild! Totally reminds me of the Sex and the City episode where Carrie meets Alexsandr!
