Walking the streets by the WTC, using a coin-toss as your guide

Gavin sez, "I just finished a project that I think might interest you: living a block away from the World Trade Center site after 9/11, I re-explored lower Manhattan by leaving my house, flipping a coin at every intersection to determine my route. After exactly one hour, I would stop and take a photograph of where I was. I did 48 of these walks. The '48 Hours from Ground Zero' project resided at an interesting intersection of emotion and binary options; I found that through randomness, I was rewiring my memories. Much later, I found out that other people call what I was doing 'psychogeography.'"

48 Hours from Ground Zero (Thanks, Gavin!)
