Journey to the End of the Night: Oakland by Lincøln, Myrna Minx

June 22nd, 2009 6:51 PM / Location: 37.808504,-122.2497

INSTRUCTIONS: A pursuit across Oakland in 6 parts.

The city spreads out before you. Rushing from point to point, lit by the slow strobe of fluorescent buses and dark streets. Stumbling into situations for a stranger's signature. Fleeing unknown pursuers, breathing hard, admiring the landscape and the multitude of worlds hidden in it.

For one night, drop your relations, your work and leisure activities, and all your usual motives for movement and action, and let yourself be drawn by the attractions of the chase and the encounters you find there.


No bikes, no cars, just feet and public transportation.

Document your experience.

This is the story of:
CHECKPOINT 2


Lincoln decided he wanted to man a checkpoint with Myrna Minx.
Myrna Minx wanted to man Checkpoint 2.

And so it was.

Myrna called Lincoln with the idea that she would be in a tuxedo and he'd be wearing a cocktail dress, "fishing" on Lake Merritt.  Lincoln decided to do a completion of Donation By Other Means with every runner that came through the checkpoint. So Lincoln photographed every runner that came through the checkpoint.


248 runners began the race. 182 made it to Checkpoint 2.

The first runners to arrive were given the charge of finding suitable "fishing poles."  These proved to be sticks with string tied to them.  Some runners were asked to tell fishermen's tales, and finally, as the checkpoint became very busy, many runners were just asked to submit their souls to the camera and forego the telling of tales or any other form of delay.

Lincoln recorded most of the people's names as they came through so we'd have names to go with the faces.

Watching the sunset and lights come on on Lake Merritt was a lovely way to experience Journey to the End of the Night as staff members.  It was fun meeting everyone and we hope to see you at the next one..

For serious

I got there to visit, and saw what Lincøln was up to with documenting all that arrived, and was super impressed with his diligence! I was barely able to alert runners about who was coming through our checkpoint because we got swamped so soon after the first few arrived.

Extra points for the picture of me having my real name, while everyone else gets their sf0 name! Yet, I don't think I ever gave my real name?.... lol

Also, snappy dress!

I believe the fine wine sipped at check point 2 by myself and Bjorn Teuleuse gave us the strength to finish the journey with green ribbons. Your tux was dashing!

Wow!

That's a very impressive set of pictures! I also didn't realize, when I saw him later in the dark, just how good Lincoln looked in that dress. :)
