Cities of You

System #1, Visit #1: Yirooa

16 x 20", Pen, Colored Pencil, Pastel, and Gouache on Paper

Climb atop a weather vane amidst the clouds that make up the Yirooa Communication Network, or "The Roo", and you may be entertained for hours. Listen as the microscopic devices whiz by your ears. Each tiny device carries a little packet of data- a slice of a syllable of a sound, a partial pixel of a picture, a fraction of a frame of a film. An orchestra of everything consumed by everyone plays scores milliseconds long. Careful not to exhale too deeply or your breadth will disarrange the tiny devices, causing a picture to become a sound, or a sound to dissolve into color.
