The Digital Trust Hike was a performance in which I tried to replace all of my senses with digital inputs as mediated through my smartphone. I walked the length of Taylor Street in San Francisco from Market Street to the Embarcadero. I navigated by following the blue dot on google maps, recorded various data using a GPS tracking app, and live tweeted my progress, while never looking up from my phone. I had friends stationed at every intersection (29 in total). When they saw me coming, they called me and talked me safely across the street.
This video is made from documentation of the hike recorded by my friends using the cameras on their phones. For more information, data, and images from the project please visit my website:
