What's annoying? Taking the photos or being taken as a paparazzi?

ja.

there's also an (obvious) formal/visual relation to structuralist
filmakers like paul sharits / michael snow and a bit of ken jacobs
thrown in as well (in the form of _proto_cinehacker).

(so clearly, better to be filed under cinema than net.art)

what i like about how the data dairies render now (through quicktime) -
is this quality of a non-sensical *expose* of cory's dirty laundry
dressed up as a (retro) structuralist film. naked data in a naked city.

and i certainly don't mind reading a little bit to laugh like that.
