Event Description

Join award winning cultural observer Hal Niedzviecki as he takes you on a multimedia tour of our new world: Peepville.

In Peepville, Hal will show you such notable features as streets lined with surveillance cameras, day cares equipped with webcams, and citizens eagerly tracking themselves and each other via Twitter, Facebook, YouTube and shared GPS.

Behind all those cameras, cell phones and profiles are real people. It’s time to meet your neighbors, the peeps of Peepville! Some of them are inexplicably revealing the intimate details of their (sex) lives online. Others have become the new enforcers of (digital) morality – digicam vigilantes who stalk everyone from bad drivers to prostitutes. Some of us just want to sit back and relax and watch other people go about their lives dying, disliking their jobs, and trying out for reality tv.

Then there’s our super-special citizens! Hal will introduce to you such Peepville luminaries as the digicam vigilante behind John.tv, the masterminds of Twitter, a Star Wars obsessed sex slave housewife blogger, and so much more! Don’t miss Hal’s guided tour down the infamous Peep Walk of Fame! Here you’ll meet the stars of Peepville: personas like Star Wars Kid, Dog Shit Girl, Washingtonienne, Dancing Cadet, and David After the Dentist. <?xml:namespace prefix =”” o />

But what’s Hal’s stake in this? The more Hal talks about Peepville, the more it becomes clear that he’s just another lonely, confused citizen looking for friendship, attention, community, and respect. Will Hal find what he’s looking for? When Hal invites his 700 Facebook friends to a party and only one shows up, it’s a wake-up call. Can Hal escape Peepville? Does he even want to?

Halshockedoh dear, they’re all going to be watching me…
