Event Details

ISO Design x Scalarama2019 presents We Live in Public, a film about Josh Harris, a poster boy for the Dot Com Bubble of the late 90s, “the greatest internet pioneer you’ve never heard of” and a remarkable yet ultimately marginalised outsider who made millions as a software developer before re-inventing himself as a conceptual artist.

Filmmaker Ondi Timoner follows Harris over the course of 15 years, including documenting his Orwellian art-project-come-social-experiment Quiet: We Live in Public, in which he places 100 artists in an underground terrarium in New York City, broadcasting every moment via webcam.

The film is a study of a fascinating but contradictory character who can be seen as both an egotistical maniac and a visionary. It is also a cautionary tale for our technology-addicted age – Harris’ relationship with technology is eerily prognostic of our present obsession with broadcasting our lives and the monetisation that comes with this narcissism and voyeurism. 

Join us for a special screening of this award winning film on its 10 year anniversary!
