Residency 1, Day 12: 'Objects always meet your obsession. Once you have an obsession, you step on it at every corner.' - Sophie Calle

I had someone from California - it was 3am in the morning there - watch and interact. At first this seemed like a bomber or bot or troller but in the end I concluded that they were probably legit. The person also followed me on Twitter. In normal life, on the streets, following someone would be creepy and wrong but it is the term of choice on social media and seen positively. Israel Tamayo seemed fine btw: I am simply generalising. Here is the exchange:
