An extension of situationist détournement, random flights
train journeys or boat trips are hijacked. It would be quite
thrill for most ordinary people, being involved in a journey
that seemingly will end in immediate death. Will I feel pain
when my body is torn apart? Will it matter?
How long will I
remember any of it? Will it matter once I can no longer
remember the trauma due to immediate lack of any
functioning neuron paths to process sensation into a
memory of conscious evaluation of recognition in what once
anything matter? Did I lock the door and turn the iron off?
Should I have done it the other way round? Is sequence and
order what life is all about?
a form of crowd-driven improv, and also as an advanced
of occupy movement, only more active, it would be quite a
relief to find that the journey was in fact a theatrical
intervention. You step out into the world, determined to
life to the full. Then get run over. Such an improv-nowhere
type of demonstration would be a fun diversion, especially
for budding terrorists, depressed loners and easily
religious idiots, channeling their search for whatever it is
theyre searching for, into something a lot more
||Then the plain clothes Sky Marshall shoots you. Game over.
||Sounds like "Spiderman: the Ride" at Universal Studios.
||Is that like Toys 'R' Us?
||IIRC, the original Situationist International split when the German situationists said out loud that the whole movement was just an efficient trick for selling art, while the French situationists insisted that there was something more profound about it (though they struggled to articulate what).
||Extreme 'Candid Camera' for a plane load of family and
friend chosen marks.
