Tasks / Journey To The End Of The Night: San Francisco Halloween 2011

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.

How did you survive for as long as you did? Was your chasing technique irresistible? What's the story you were already telling even before it was over? Do you think that's going to heal? Tell us.

I've put off submitting this proof way too long. The memories of that night are all in tatters and fragments now. I remember moving as part of a massive surge from the starting line, jogging in packs of twenty and thirty, all of us amped up on adre...
